Hi. You should ask questions to the list. There are many who can  
answer your question there.

In the older versions you can put the retrieve statement in an eval  
block. I think newer behavior may be only to issue a warning and keep  

You may be able to also set verbose to -1 (-verbose => -1) in the  
initialization of the db obj and see whether it skips or fails on  
missing ID.
