empty, unless there's  an error

I always use revExecuteSQL for any SQL statement other than SELECT,

I've found it easier to just use the one form.  I also have a
process/wrapper that I use for non-memory commands.

It has for two years . . . I

Creating a simple table in an in memory database?  That can only be a few
milliseconds, if that.

It's already opened the databases a this point, though.

try/catch set me on the trail.  the database for the cacheDb wasn't a
number.  And by backtracing down about three levels (put in ck points,
compile run, repeat), I finally found the culprit.

I have a test for whether it's in the IDE or not, and the IDE  branch was
building an array to measure heights--so when I moved the normal place to
build it . . .

But  I still don't think that bombing out in a funciton with no error
message returned is acceptable . . .
