Executing commands with Association/Foreign Key in Stored Procedure

Hi All,

I have created 2 tables using the *.hdbdd format below.

AssetType is the header table and Asset is the detail one.

Primary Key in AssetType table is FATHER_ID while ASSETTYP_ID is the foreign key in Asset table.

@Catalog.tableType : #COLUMN

Entity AssetType {

key ID: String (50);

key FATHER_ID: Association to Asset {ASSETTYP_ID};

ROLE_ID: String (50);


TEXT: String (200);


FATHER_TEXT: String (50);



COMMENT: String (50);


@Catalog.tableType : #COLUMN

Entity Asset {

key ID: String (50);

FOREIGN_ID: String (50);

key ASSETTYP_ID: String (50);

STATUS_ID: String (50);

CITY_ID: String (50);

TEXT: String (200);

COMMENT: String (400);



SUBSTANCE: String (50);




And I have created a stored procedure that accepts some parameters, one of which is the passettype_id parameter which contains the value of a FATHER_ID. In the procedure, I would like to check if the value of the passettype_id parameter is already existing in the table before I do anything, thus:

PROCEDURE "AIP"."aip.procedures::AssetsInsertUpdate" (

IN passettype_id NVARCHAR(50),



declare lv_rowcount integer;

select count(FATHER_ID) into lv_rowcount ==> THIS IS LINE 33

from "AIP"."" as AType

where AType.ASSETTYP_ID = :passettype_id;



However, I get an error that says:

Error while activating /aip/procedures/AssetsInsertUpdate.hdbprocedure:

Could not create catalog object: invalid column name; FATHER_ID: line 33 col 18 (at pos 988)

What should the be the correct field name in my statements?

Similarly, I get the same error for my update statement that follows this select count command:

update "AIP"."" as AssetTyp

set ID = :pheadassetid,

ROLE_ID = :prole_id,


COMMENT = :pheadcomment

where AssetTyp.ASSETTYP_ID = :passettype_id; ==> THIS IS LINE 52


Error while activating /aip/procedures/AssetsInsertUpdate.hdbprocedure:

Could not create catalog object: invalid column name; ASSETTYP.ASSETTYP_ID: line 52 col 24 (at pos 1796)

Please advise.

    The field name should probably be:

    select count(FATHER_ID.ID) ...

    Also, the ASSETTYP.ASSETTYP_ID should be simply ASSETTYP.ID

    When in doubt, it's better to open the tables in the catalog and check the field names directly.
