Semantic errors arise when SQL statements are formulated in full accordance with the syntax rules, but do not reflect the programmer's intentions correctly.
Some semantic errors, e.g. incorrect references to database objects, are detected and reported by the ESQL preprocessor but other semantic errors will not become apparent until run-time.
