IceLocation()

It is highly recommended that you append the results of a call to this function to any message text you supply on the "IceError()" and "IceWarning()" functions.

If you supply the information then "ORCA" allows the user to click on an error message and it will navigate to the appropriate location in the database and highlight the problem row and column.

This function takes these parameters:

  1. This is the name of the table in which the error occurs.

  2. This is the name of the column within the table which should be highlighted.

    This and the following parameter can be empty strings if no specific column or record is the problem. "ORCA" features will caus eit to "crap out" if you supply an invalid column name, please ensure its case is correct and that you haven't forgotten a trailing underscore if it has one!

  3. This is the row key which uniquely identifies the record where the problem occurs. For a multi column key I think that the keys need to be separated by commas.

It may at times be wise to produce two messages if the problem is a mismatch between two tables etc.
