This appears to along the same lines as Shao Sean's post "issues with rev
comparing a returned string" 30 Jan, where he wrote the following script was
not giving the expected results:

put revDataFromQuery(TAB, LF, tConnID, tSQL) into tColumnInfo
if (tColumnInfo contains "revdberr") then
 put tColumnInfo
end if

Your current experience would suggest that in certain circumstances errors
do not post "revdberr" to the result so the 'then' structure is never

This will certainly make error trapping far more laborious :-(
