we are executing some sql string from .NET against sqlanywhere and our errors are not getting reported.
For example. If I have select * from TableThatExists
and then inside the same sql do a select * from TableThatDoesNotExist I don't get any error.
I just receive the first select.
I know the onerror = 'stop' should help but I can't flip that flag since others are using the same database.
I did try to use SET TEMPORARY OPTION ON_ERROR = 'STOP' but that gives an error of "Cannot set a temporary option for user..."

AFAIK, on_error is an ISQL option and as such does not have any influence on other applications (like your .Net app).

How are you handling errors around your SQL code? I would expect a query against a non-existing table to throw a SAException object...

The problem was not SQL Anywhere it was my coding of .NET I was using the DataAdapter.FillSchema against 2 select statements and the FillSchema seems to ingore the table half of the select when getting the column names.

Please provide your select statement, as Volker says you should get an Exception in .net, e.g. for a statement of the form: select * from ExistingTable where x in (select x from NotExisting) something like:

ERROR [42S02] [Sybase][ODBC Driver][SQL Anywhere]Table 'NotExisting' not found
