Hi all
I have this function:
def checkName(self, name):
cur = self.conn.curso r()

sql = "SELECT * from patient WHERE fn_pat = '" + name + "'"
cur.execute(sql )
rows = cur.fetchall()

if rows == "[]":

It seems to work fine, But I'm getting this exception:
psycopg2.Progra mmingError: current transaction is aborted, commands
ignored until end of transaction block
at: cur.execute(sql )

What's the problem?

ps: fn_pat is the column of the db, name is the string passed in the
function parameter


Does `name` happen to have an apostrophe in it? You may want to look at
using bind variables.

cur.execute("SE LECT * from patient WHERE fn_pat=%(name)s ",
{'name': name})

There was a thread a while back dealing with an error message the psycopg2 Postgres interface gives when trying to convert some mxDateTime values: "can't adapt". The answer given was that psycopg2 wasn't finding the mxDateTime include files during setup, so it assumed they weren't there. I'm having the same problem. I've installed both packages from source. However, as far as I can tell, the mxDateTime include files are never copied to...

Hi all, while building an applycation in pygtk I noticed that psycopg2 returns the floats rouded (eg: 4.123 -> 4.0). This turns out to be a problem of psycopg2 (psycopg behaves correctly) when you 'import gtk' !!! It behaves correctly with numeric/decimal, though. I'm totally clueless. Any hints?

Hello, clp and all people reading it! Recently I was porting my (small) app from psycopg to psycopg2 (they got me with this "2"). I read, that psycopg2 supports all features of psycopg and plus many more, however, when I started to port, I discovered, that psycopg2 lacks serialized connections and "commit on cursor" completely. Did I miss something or psycopg2 just isn't mature enough yet? BTW, is there any postgresql engine, that can...

Hi All. I'm using psycopg2 to retrieve results from a rather large query (it returns 22m records); unsurprisingly this doesn't fit in memory all at once. What I'd like to achieve is something similar to a .NET data provider I have which allows you to set a 'FetchSize' property; it then retrieves 'n' many rows at a time, and fetches the next 'chunk' after you read past the end of the current chunk. I suppose I could use Python for .NET...
