bug#13715: 24.2; Invalid function when calling sql-connect


From: Michael Mauger
Subject: bug#13715: 24.2; Invalid function when calling sql-connect
Date: Sun, 10 Mar 2013 18:54:42 -0700 (PDT)

This was a documentation error, version 3.2 corrects this, and the "Wrong 
number of arguments" error.

Replaced "symbol" with "case-insensitive string"

Thanks for the report.
