1.1  Database Errors

1.1.1  Can't Connect to Database

This is a server-side error that occurs when an effort to connect to the database ultimately failed.

The webmaster is notified each time this error occurs. Generally, database connection problems are short-lived. Attempting to reload the page in your browser window may result in a successful connection.

1.1.2  Can't Prepare/Execute SQL Statement

Problems resulting in this error are due to parameter values not being received or some other database error. This is due to a problem on the server side.

The webmaster will be notified any time an error of this type occurs, and will look into fixing the problem.

1.1.3  Data Fetching Terminated Early by Error

This error occurs when some unforeseen error occurs during a database query operation. It can occur for a number of reasons. Since it is normally an intermittent problem, you should click the Back button and try to perform your query again.

The webmaster will be notified any time an error of this type occurs, and will look into fixing the problem.

1.1.4  No Search Criteria Specified

When a search is performed, you must specify certain criteria that you are looking for. The type and number of query elements depends on the particular search being performed, but each search normally requires at least one search field to be filled in or selected.

To resolve this problem, click the Back button and specify at least one search criteria before clicking the Continue button.

1.1.5  No Matches

This message indicates that no database records were found that meet your specific search criteria. In most cases, your search may be too specific. By removing or changing some of your criteria to broaden your search, records may be found.
