ODBC Problem From Access97 to SQL 6.5

I continually receive ODBC Error 3146 in an Access97 app linked to SQL 6.5. I recently had to reinstall SQL after a struture change. I am afraid I missed some configuration option. I get this error when running INSERT INTO state ments to local temporay tables within the Access App.
DB - 4GB

The primary table has 1.4 million rows. 8 of 27 fileds had to be indexed.

256 MB Ram, 2Ppro, 16GB raid 5. 100baseT connections

"ODBC Error 3146" is insufficient info. Go to debug mode after the error and list the Errors Collection: Ctrl-G to get the immediate window, for i=0 to Errors.Count-1:? Errors(i).Number,Errors(i).Description:next - Errors(0) usually contains the interesting stuff.

I Know of an Access - SQL Server Problem that involves The ANSI standard NULL comparision syntax.

The problem is that Access Tests the previous state of an updated
record (Optimistic Locking) to see if the data has changed.  and if it has you get an error.

The BUG is in that if a column is null during this comparision. Access tests Like So:

AField = NULL

SQL Server Will not report an error if you do this, but it will return incorrect results.  ie (afield = NULL) = False even when afield is null.

The correct ANSI syntax is:

afield IS NULL, but I have found no way to force Access to do this.

You will know if this is the problem if only records containing null fields cause the error.

Hope this helps,

I still feel the problem may lie in a configuration option. I'll look at the lock settings. I have a feeling it is something in indexing. I don't think it's a NULL problem because all valuse are defulated to '0'. Thanks

Kuk - here are the errors
 3265
jeterr35.hlp
 5003265
DAO.Errors
Item not found in this collection.

Could this be a DAO problem? I run the query via a module with DAO.

The error description does not make sense. I can do this at certain times and with other Indexing structures.
