sure it is used in the custom query section iof the Frontapage DRW:


SELECT * FROM Open_Brasw WHERE SDDOCO =  ::SDDOCO::
ORDER BY SDTRDJ_GR DESC

Commented:
How does the query perform is written as:

SELECT * FROM Open_Brasw WHERE SDDOCO =  'SDDOCO'
ORDER BY SDTRDJ_GR DESC

?

I'd love to be able to figure this one out, too. Using MySQL, we began seeing this error after installing the latest MyODBS drivers and updating to the l4.0.16 version of MySQL anytime we queried a record and tried to check a value of a TEXT (clob) field that was empty.

Damned frustrating.
The problem might be with the DSN set up. I had a similar issue and the problem was traced back to the DSN entry. The driver was set up as "Oracle Driver for Oracle 9i". Once it was changed to "Microsoft ODBC for Oracle", the application started working fine.

This problem was solved by us (using ASP with MySQL) by updating our Miscrosoft Data Access Components (MDAC).  The versions that are installed by default with Windows 2000 will cause these errors. We got them when trying to read a value from a CLOB/TEXT field that was empty after updating to the MyODBC v3.51 from the 2.x version, but I've heard similar stories from people using MS SQL and the MD ODBC drivers.

You can download the Microsoft MDAC latest version (2.8) from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6c050fe3-c795-4b7d-b037-185d0506396c&DisplayLang=en

Note, that though this is the latest version, upon installing them you will note two things:
1) Instances causing those Multiple Step OLE DB Errors should go away (they did for us), and
2) You will get an update from the MS update site inviting you to apply a security patch to the MDAC components you just downloaded from the MS site, because they've been updated. :-/
