Handling Error Messages and Warnings with MySQL

To ensure that your MySQL Database works as efficiently as possible, it is important to know how to handle error messages and warnings.

Error messages have three components:

  • A MySQL-specific error code, such as 1146
  • A SQLSTATE error code. These codes are defined by standard SQL and the ODBC standard.
  • A text message that describes the problem

MySQL Server generates a warning when it is not fully able to comply with a request or when an action has possibly unintended side effects. You can display these warnings with the SHOW WARNINGS statement.

To learn about handling error messages and warnings along with other developer topics, consider taking the MySQL for Developers training course.

You can take this 5-day course as a:

  • Live-virtual event: Attend a live training event from your own desk, no travel required. Choose from a selection of events on the schedule to suti different timezones.
  • In-class event: Travel to an education center to attend a class. Below is a selection of the events already on the schedule.
