[McGovern, Dave] Enabled, yes.  Usefully enabled, no (correcting this
helped a lot).

[McGovern, Dave] It was returning ''.  I was expecting 1.

[McGovern, Dave] 
Hi, Peter -
Thanks for the suggestions.  I did have error logging enabled, but I
wasn't writing any of my own errors to the log, so it wasn't doing me
much good. Once I started doing this, I was able to trace the source of
the error to the fact that this particular SQL script was meant to be
aimed at a different schema. The reason it worked in MySQL Query Browser
was that the required schema was already selected in the Query Browser

Sorry to have wasted the list's time with what turned out to be a silly
human error.
