Now i'm using existing program(VB), when i tried to save the data (SQL server), the error 3146 ODBC call failed occurred.

This error is too general, so tried to run the source code to trace the exact error. It said some of the fields of the table cannot contain null value.
But nobody change the data structure, why this error occurred?

Actually this application been used for yrs oledy, but suddenly hit this error.
Don't know what's wrong?
When i try to ammend the program and insert a default value to that non-null field, the data was inserted succesfuly...why?

Thanks

Phoebe

i think the data u r trying to save, includes a null value for a field in the table, which has been set not to accept null values.
There is no problem with the data structure.

One thing to remember. SQL Server view a null and a blank as two different things.  A blank is a white space that has a character value.  Best to check your data and run some queries to see if you have any nulls.  If you do, then you can update them to blanks. (verify the table structure in SQL Server to see if nulls are allowed.)
Also if you have a large amount of data and/or a complicated query, then you might need to change your query timeout settings in the registry.  Depending on the app, is where you will find it in the registry. Do a search for Query Timeout. Most apps set it to a default of 60 (seconds).  You might want to up it.
Last but not least, check to see if you have correct connectivity.  This is a very common error messsge for SQL when it simply can not connect to the table in question.

Is the application new to the data or vise versa?  You may have contraints in you app that are not necessarily in your physical data structure.  The app would then force the rule.  Typically, they should match, but you have indicated that this is a new error.  The best trace for new errors is always, 'what has changed recently?'.  Have you checked the structure of your SQL table?  If you recently converted from another database system the configurations could have been set to default 'nulls not allowed' for columns unless directly specified.  Again, what is new since you started receiving the error?
