DAO dbUseODBC w/ SQL Server text fields?

I try to convert a VB program to use dbUseODBC workspaces. I get the following error when reading a field which is defined as text on MS SQL Server (which would be called memo in VB terms):

Run-time error '0':

S1109: [MS][SQL Server Driver]Invalid cursor position

The type of the field in question is given correctly as dbMemo by DAO. Querying some other field properties, eg Size, produces the same error. While doing some trial and error debugging, I somehow managed to get a message like 'the requested action is not supported with the current version of the cursor library' - so I tried all combinations of OpenRecordset parameters that made sense to me, namely the locking options - to no avail.

Anybody know what´s going on ? Tips?

Are you using appendchunk/getchunk methods?  Large memo fields are handled differently from normal fields.  The size property does not apply, but the fieldsize property does, when using DAO in VB.  These methods and properties would also map over to your useage as well, I think.

You mean I have to replace code like X$=myRecordSet("MyMemoField") with getchunk calls? Care to elaborate (too lazy to go into that code today)?
