Sql Server 2019 

PowerBuilder 2019 R3 build 2728

I'm using ODBC connection 

I have a datastore, I change data and then do an update

lds_post_dates.setitem(i, "column_name", ll_value)
ll_rv = lds_post_dates.update()


The base table for the datastore has a instead of update trigger on it.  

It already has SET  NOCOUNT  ON

When I execute the update I get the error "Row changed between retrieve and update".

Thanks for any help you can provide

look at your update options on the datawindow definition.  You apparently have 'updatable' columns to include in your where clause.

that means it includes all updatable columns in the where when it issues the update.  if the column value is changed between the select and the update, then you get the row changed error.


"The base table for the datastore has a instead of update trigger on it.  "

are you changing data in the trigger?

The datawindow has Update Properties - Where Clause as Key Columns

The trigger is changing one column value

did you disable the trigger to eliminate that as the cause?

after that you can use the database profiler along with stepping through the PB debugger to see the order of the insert and update to track down when the problem occurs.
