Hi Jane, I hit the same problem.
The FETCH statement gains you nothing, as it's just hunting for a substring in an existing parameter.
As far as I can tell, only Events rather than Traps have the fields available.
My getround was to hard code the ip address in the SELECT statement. Then repeat the entire paragraph for the
next IP address.
After the customised section, I repeated the entire stanza but without the ip address,
so as to give a generic message for all other IP addresses.
From memory something like:
4: $ADAPTER_ID = "";
nvhostname = "sys1.uk.com";
