I have just upgraded from 4.1.2 to 4.2.3.
The same code is fine in 4.1.2 but not in 4.2.3.
$sql = "SELECT can#id canid FROM cvs WHERE can#id = TO_NUMBER('".$candid."')";
$resultcanid = sql_exec($connectionid, $sql);
sql_fetch_row ($resultcanid);
echo sql_result($result,"name");

In 4.1.2 if fetch returned nothing then nothing/null is echoed
In 4.2.3 the echo produces what looks like buffer info from a previous query. I use same variables for just about all queries ($sql,$result etc)

sql_exec function does a OCIparase followed by a OCIExecute
sql_fetch_row does OCIFetch
sql_result does OCIResult
