NAME

dblink_exec - executes a command in a remote database

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

dblink_exec(text connname, text sql [, bool fail_on_error]) returns text
dblink_exec(text connstr, text sql [, bool fail_on_error]) returns text
dblink_exec(text sql [, bool fail_on_error]) returns text

DESCRIPTION

dblink_exec executes a command (that is, any SQL statement that doesnt return rows) in a remote database.

When two text arguments are given, the first one is first looked up as a persistent connections name; if found, the command is executed on that connection. If not found, the first argument is treated as a connection info string as for dblink_connect, and the indicated connection is made just for the duration of this command.

ARGUMENTS

connname

Name of the connection to use; omit this parameter to use the unnamed connection.

connstr

A connection info string, as previously described for dblink_connect.

sql

The SQL command that you wish to execute in the remote database, for example insert into foo values(0,a,{"a0","b0","c0"}).

fail_on_error

If true (the default when omitted) then an error thrown on the remote side of the connection causes an error to also be thrown locally. If false, the remote error is locally reported as a NOTICE, and the functions return value is set to ERROR.

RETURN VALUE

Returns status, either the commands status string or ERROR.

EXAMPLES

SELECT dblink_connect(dbname=dblink_test_standby);
 dblink_connect
----------------
 OK
(1 row)

SELECT dblink_exec(insert into foo values(21,z,{"a0","b0","c0"});); dblink_exec ----------------- INSERT 943366 1 (1 row)

SELECT dblink_connect(myconn, dbname=regression); dblink_connect ---------------- OK (1 row)

SELECT dblink_exec(myconn, insert into foo values(21,z,{"a0","b0","c0"});); dblink_exec ------------------ INSERT 6432584 1 (1 row)

SELECT dblink_exec(myconn, insert into pg_class values (foo),false); NOTICE: sql error DETAIL: ERROR: null value in column "relnamespace" violates not-null constraint

dblink_exec ------------- ERROR (1 row)
