If you are working in a 64-bit environment and you have recently updated any
of the MySQL related libraries you might want to look at which dynamic
libraries you are linking with rasqlinsert()  use the command ldd
/the/full/path/and/filename/for/rasqlinsert and send the output to this
mailing list.

Hi Carter,

Thanks for your feedback.

I've attempted to run rasqlinsert v3.0.7.18 but quitted immediately with
segfault. I kept downgrading until v3.0.7.5 where it started successfully. I
will leave it running until tomorrow and see if the next day table is

Hey Ricardo,
Grab a copy of the developers clients version where a lot of bugs
have been fixed.

This version will become 3.0.8, hopefully soon.
When there are " % "s in the table name, the record contents become the
source of time for generating the destination table name.

All looks like it should work.  If you have problems with send
email !!!!
