Hi,

I am using Version 16.0.0.2043 of SAP SQL Anywhere - Ultralite for windows mobile platform (.NET framework).

When I execute:

SELECT RAND();

I get an error that the function is unknown. All the documentation indicates that this is supported in ultralite.

Is there a reason why this function would not work?

Thank you for any help! Paula

Hi Paula!

I'm curious what you would like to use this for, and whether you think we should support it.

The new feature announced in Version 12 was for the UltraLiteJ implementation (ie. a Java Ultralite runtime)

For non-Java UltraLite platforms (ie. Windows Mobile Classic in your case) there appears not to have ever been a RAND() function. As such the documented expection is backwards and I'll get that looked into.
