The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I think I must be missing something very obvious! I'm trying to run a very long sql script (with Run Script) , which generates large number of unimportant (in this context) warnings. While behaviour on error can be controlled using the Options | General | Command Files settings, warnings still seem to halt execution and require manual intervention.

There is a command line switch (-q) so I have a work around, but I don't see any equivalent setting in the GUI.

Setting the on_error option to 'Continue' should (but currently does not) prevent warnings from being displayed. This is a behavior change that was inadvertently introduced in version 9.0.1. We'll issue a fix for this in an upcoming EBF. Thanks for pointing it out.

Adding

set temporary option on_error = 'Continue';

to your SQL script should cause your script to continue if there are errors or warnings.

Thanks for the suggestion, but while it does prevent errors interrupting execution, warnings still bring up a dialog box.

This can be illustrated by this script:

set temporary option on_error = 'Continue';
select * from NonExistentTable;
select first * from TableThatDoesExist;
select * from AnotherTableThatDoesExist;

Execution stops with a warning that the result is non-deterministic, having continued past the error caused by the non-existent table.
