Hi Das,

Most likely because you haven't assigned the session object.

iOldRow is only needed if you don't use primary keys, it uses the old
values to select the record its updating. If you do use primary keys and
tell Omnis to use the primary key it doesn't use the old row.
I've overridden this code to do a comparison between the old row and the
current values to limit the update query to only include columns that
have actually changed and automatically update last modified data.
