    Unanswered: insert large text to TEXT field

    Wonder how I can insert a large text (exceeding 256 bytes) into a
    field in Informix 7.31 of data type TEXT (clob)? I do not want to use sql
    statement LOAD to load a file, just want to add a large text from a form in Visual Basic.

    IBM informix ODBC driver supports literal as well as parameterized
    inserts in a TEXT column.
    (Literal inserts into text columns are not supported by IDS .. however ODBC driver works around this limitation to support literal inserts )

    Thus your VB application using ODBC driver
    should be able to insert into a text column.
