ODBC DSN Setup Parameters

Posted on 2006-04-19

Is there a reference for the ODBC fields which show up when you setup and ODBC DSN's?

I've got it almost working but I'm getting and error telling me the fetched item was truncated because "LongTruncOk not set and/or LongReadLen too small" .

    There was a checkbox that controls this when you set the ODBC options while creating a DSN. Something like "Text as Varchar" or to that matter - if you don't find it yourself i'll look it up tomorrow. You'll have to edit the DSN and re-link the tables again though.
