[ic] "touching" a database causes [import] to stop working
Fri, 22 Sep 2000 13:44:50 -0400 (EDT)
I've isolated a problem that's happening whenever I want to use the
[import] tag to add a record to a database.
If I use [perl tables="whatever"] or [data whatever column key] in
the same page, then the [import] tag fails to work. As soon as I
comment out the [data] tag (or remove the table from the perl tag),
the [import] works again.
What I'm doing in the page that performs the [import] is to check for
duplicate records before inserting. This means doing a lookup on the
proposed key to make sure there isn't already a record with the same
key. The act of "touching" the database this way appears to make the
[import] tag impotent.
Is Interchange/minivend locking the table?
