    Unanswered: Bolded letters in Informix 7.3

    The problem is as follows:

    I need to make a single letter in a field bold. But there are some problems.
    1. Whitch type of field I can use to do this.
    2. How can I read this info from a field.

    I am using PowerBuilder 6.5 to create a program for the job but I can not read a blob directly or write to it directly. If anybody can help please write a line or two

    If you want to stores those control characters in the database you should use a TEXT or a BYTE type. Maybe (just a thought) a char/varchar field could be enough, but I wouldn't bet for it.

    Sorry, but I don't know how you deal with those types using PowerBuilder. If you have CSDK installed there are some examples (ESQL/C code) in the INFORMIXDIR/demo/esql directory.

    Hope it helps.
