Here is one for you Oracle/VB experts. I have an ODBC connection to an Oracle DB on a UNIX box. In my Oracle table, I have columns setup using the NUMBER,VARCHAR2 & DATE datatypes. Using all the Oracle tools I can perform selects on all the columns, no problem. When I use a select from my VB app on any column with datatype NUMBER, nothing is returned. The selects on the VARCHAR2 and DATE columns work just fine. What's up? I am by no means a VB or Oracle expert. I am using Oracle 8 and VB 6. Hopefully, I've supplied enough info.
