python mysql.connector.errors.InterfaceError: Use multi=True when executing multiple statements

一時疏乎,同一個 cursor.execute 下了 2個 sql command 就出錯了。

除了可以分成 2 次下 cursor.execute() 也可以在 cursor.execute 時增加 multi=True 參數。

合在一起下的  example:

Using a for loop at cursor.execute with multi=True worked. I don’t know why we need to loop through.

for result in cursor.execute(SQL, multi=True):

Without loop just cursor.execute(SQL, multi=True) did not do any changes in the database.

import mysql.connector

cnx = mysql.connector.connect(user='scott', database='test')
cursor = cnx.cursor()

SQL = '''
    update my_table 
    LAY = 'P6682'
    , BLK = 'P6682'
    , ANI = 'P6682'
    Shot = 'SH01';

    update my_table 
    LAY = '1863'
    , BLK = '1863'
    , ANI = '1863'
    Shot = 'SH02'

for result in cursor.execute(SQL, multi=True):



PS: multi=True is not necessary in a loop.

  1. This solved my issue:

    for result in cursor.execute(SQL, multi=True):

    Not sure why it needed the loop, I was able to get it to work without the loop a couple times but it wasn’t consistently working.

    Thank you
