Problem after upgrade.

Problem after upgrade.

Problem after upgrade.

Hi all

I had a v7.1.2 DB running on NetBSD when the machine died the data was rescued off the RAID using a v7.4.12 client.

Having replaced the Server and installed v8.1.3 (on Gentoo) I get an error (function foo() does not exist) on functions that contain double, and date parameter types.

Other functions that use ints, varchars etc works, it's only these that are proving problematic. The application's ODBC drivers have been upgraded as well and has been in use for 3.5 years without any problems (until now) but the source code for the application is lost so we can't do anything to modify it.

Has anyone any suggestions or came across this before or have I missed something in the upgrade process.

I'd really appreciate some help on this.

RE: Problem after upgrade.

One thing I forgot to mention was the fact that I have 2 functions with the same name but with different parameters. One takes 4 and the other takes 5.

RE: Problem after upgrade.

Just to let you all know that this is now fixed, it turned out to be the order in which the functions were created. By changing their order in the dump file so that the 5 parameter one was created first fixed the problem!
