PERFORM STATEMENT

PERFORM STATEMENT

PERFORM STATEMENT

(OP)
I have a function

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION rules_broken(ordref bigint)
  RETURNS character varying AS

DECLARE
    rules RECORD;
    rulesbroken character varying;
    ordsource character varying;
    
BEGIN
    
    FOR rules IN SELECT rul_id,rul_sql FROM sd_stp_rules ORDER BY rul_id LOOP

    EXECUTE rules.rul_sql || ' AND ord_id =' || ordref;
        
    If found then
            rulesbroken:=rulesbroken || rules.rul_id || ';';
    end if;

    END LOOP;

    RETURN rulesbroken;
END;

In my table sd_STP_rules.rul_sql I had simple selects e.g.
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM d_order WHERE ....

This bombs.  I read that I should use a PERFORM statement but again this bombs.  

Anybody have a clue of the correct syntax of the PERFOM statement.

I have been trying PERFORM Select Count(*) FROM d_order WHERE ....   

and also PERFORM Count(*) FROM d_order WHERE ....   

but no joy

any help here would be much appreciated ...


Thanks W
