Production database programs usually fail because of bad expected data in the database. A structured query language (SQL) error may be thrown but it still takes some time to determine the root cause of an SQL statement failure. Specifically what record or SELECT condition may be causing the problem. Often the program developer know exactly how to isolate the error using specific diagnostic SQL. Logging of these failures at the time of failure is critical to resolving the problem. Having the knowledge of the program developer is also critical.
