ANSI PADDING

Setup: SQL Server 6.5. Client- MS Access 2.0 ODBC driver version 1.02.3231 (comes with Access). The problem I have is: I have a SQL table vith ,say char(10) column. When I attach this table in Access, text entered in character field  is padded with spaces (eg. instead of 'aaa' i would have 'aaa       ' so in order to insert or add something to the end I have to remove spaces and then type. I belive it has something to do with ANSI padding setting in SQL server, so how do i configure it?

Your column on the SQL server needs to be defined as VarChar(10).  This should prevent it from being padded.

Also, MS has been slipping in fixes on every release of Access and the ODBC drivers.  If you can, you are well off going to the latest version of MS Access (Access 97 or 8.0) and installing the 3.0 version of the ODBC driver manager.
