Suppress error upon DROP of a nonexistent index.


[SQL]    DDLNo333=n

n is either 1 or 0. The default value is 0.


When DDLNo333 is enabled (n = 1), when an attempt is made to DROP a nonexistent index, InterSystems IRIS® data platform suppresses the SQLCODE -333 error.

For further details, refer to the DROP INDEX command.

Changing This Parameter

On the SQL page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > SQL and Object Settings > SQL), select Ignore redundant DDL statements to suppress redundant SQLCODE errors.

You can also change DDLNo333 with the Config.SQLOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
