Why does the following upload_insert script get the (in)famous "Not enough values for host variables" error message in 16.0.0.2419?

The Help says "With the exception of in/out parameters, you can specify the same named parameter more than once within a script."

Clearly, I am missing / have forgotten some fundamental point... :)

(BTW, how does one tell if a parameter is in/out, in this context?)

CALL ml_add_table_script  ( 'v1', 't1', 'upload_insert', '
IF {ml r."non_key_1"} = ''MagicValue'' THEN
INSERT t1
       ( key_1,
         key_2,
         non_key_1,
         non_key_2 )
VALUES ( {ml r."key_1"},
         {ml r."key_2"},
         {ml r."non_key_1"},
         {ml r."non_key_2"} ) 
ELSE
INSERT t1
       ( key_1,
         key_2,
         non_key_1,
         non_key_2 )
VALUES ( {ml r."key_1"},
         {ml r."key_2"},
         {ml r."non_key_1"},
         ''SorryLoser'' )
END IF;' );

Thanks for bringing that up... I'd think in/out refers to user-deined parameters ("{ml.u ")...

Yes, I see that. There are also some (well at least one) "s." parameters that are documented as INOUT like s.authentication_message in the authenticate_parameters event.

However, that doesn't answer the question about the r.column_name parameters... are they always IN?

On the surface, this does not appear to be the expected behavior. We are investigating and will report back.
