Description:
1) We are developing one small application in Struts with MySql,
i specified the length of the field 5, but when i try to insert a record it is accepting more then 5 integers, char, varchars. It has to be control.
            Once open in the MySqlCC i am able to see the whole number, once if i click on the grid it is changing according to the field size,
Eg: field length  5
      Record val = 3434532345
      If click on mysqlcc grid it will change to  34345

2) I am not able to write a IIF condition query.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.mysql.com/documentation/ and the instructions on
how to report a bug at http://bugs.mysql.com/how-to-report.php

Additional info:

This is documented here:

I do not see IIF listed in our function list.  Typo or referencing another RDBMS' function?
