System 11 sp_getmessage call in Powerbuilder 5.0

We're having a problem calling sp_getmessage in sybsystemprocs in a
PB5.03 application.

We used sp_addmessage to add message 20000 in the sysusermessages
table.  The PB application pbl is our standard login pbl and we want
it to check for a message using sp_getmessage and, if there is a
message (as opposed to ""), then show the user the message in an OK
Box.  This allows use to communicate with the user base about
maintenance down time etc etc.

We've followed the syntax in PB and keep getting the following

"Can't use the OUTPUT option when passing a constant to a stored 

The PB code is as follows:

string	ls_msgtxt
integer	li_msgnbr
li_msgnbr = 20000
DECLARE l_getmessage PROCEDURE FOR sp_getmessage
	@msg_nbr = :li_msgnbr,
	@msg_txt = :ls_msgtxt output
EXECUTE l_getmessage;
// Check for success or failure of stored procedure
	/* Stored Procedure executed successfully.  Determine 
	the values of the output parameters to the stored
	FETCH l_getmessage INTO :ls_msgtxt ;
	// Close the procedure
	CLOSE l_getmessage;
	Messagebox("Database Error", SQLCA.SQLErrText)
IF ( IsNull( ls_msgtxt ) ) OR ( ls_msgtxt = "" ) THEN

We've succesfully used this syntax with a stored procedure that we
wrote that returns values without any problems.  Is there something
specific about sp_getmessage, or the fact that it is a system stored
procedure?  Do I have to write a wrapper for sp_getmessage and pass
values back and forth?

Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure that your transaction object's userid attribute is empty or
null before you connect.

PowerBuilder 10.5.2 Build 7826 differs from PowerBuilder 11.5.1 Build 4675
Apparently there's some data conversion issues that differ from PowerBuilder 10.5.2 and 11.5.1 (builds listed in subject). The following mini scrip results in different returned values: Byte lb_test Decimal ld_test lb_test = 48 ld_test = Dec(lb_test) MessageBox("Test", String(ld_test)) In PowerBuilder 10.5.2, the messagebox displays the value "48". In PowerBuilder 11.5.1 the messagebox displays the value "0.48". It appears that in PB 11.5.1, it's dividing the result by 100 for some reason. It appears to be a bug, just wanted to ve...

Migration to PowerBuilder 6.5 from Powerbuilder 4.0
Hi all, I'm going to migrate from Powerbuilder 4.0 to Powerbuilder 6.5 soon.

Powerbuilder 5.0 against Visual Basic 5.0
Can someone give me some good advise why I sould use Powerbuilder 5.0 instead of Visual Basic 5.0 for making critical applications (With SQL-server 6.5) ?? We are looking forward to build critical applications for around 100 users. Please sent your notes to e-mail: instead of this newsgroup. Many thanks! Mainly because you don't have to put up with all the crap found in the Microsoft newsgroups when you need help. (Ads for pirated software from Hong Kong, etc.) There are a lot of other reasons as well (PB is OO, supports inheritance, yadda yadda yadda)....
