Hi,

I would like to do following thing:

TCHAR dataType[128];
SDWORD cbdatatype;
SQLGetData(hstmt, 1, SQL_C_CHAR, dataType, sizeof(dataType), &cbdatatype);

if(dataType == "VARCHAR")
{
...
}

the problem is that I cannot compare "VARCHAR" with an array of tchars.


Does someone has a solution?


thx.

Use _tcscmp function, this is strcmp for TCHAR type:

if(_tcscmp(dataType, _T("VARCHAR") == 0 )
{
}
