DSN errors; DSN-Less doesn't
Posted on 2000-03-31
I'm dealing with a problem that occurs when I return a field (typeof nText) via the DSN (in VB6) but is solved when I use a connection string that includes: Provider=SQLOLEDB
Runtime error '-214217887 (80040e21)':
The field in question holds HTML content - small to moderate sized pages. When I use Query Analyzer to see how it returns data it runs without errors but truncates the field in question...the output stream simply stops.
As I said....I've found the right combination of ConnectString parameters but I'd like to better understand how it is that a DSN connection is not working. For some reason I'm thinking it should be _more stable/verbose. Also, the wizard that creates the DSN starts off by asking which provider to use. (version 3.70.06.90 on win98 client, iis4/nt host)
