After running the following OpenQuery...
UPDATE OPENQUERY(LINKEDSERVER, 'SELECT START_ORDER_NO FROM "OECTLFIL" WHERE "FILE_KEY" = 1')
SET START_ORDER_NO = 0
----The START_ORDER_NO field contains a 48
SET START_ORDER_NO = 1~9
----The START_ORDER_NO field contains 49~57 respectively.
SET START_ORDER_NO = 10
---The START_ORDER_NO field contains 12337
SET START_ORDER_NO = 11
---The START_ORDER_NO field contains 12593
SET START_ORDER_NO = 12
---The START_ORDER_NO field contains 12849
incrementing by 256 as I increase the value passed...
ASCII 48-57 are the characters 0-9. The string '10' consists of the two bytes with the values 49 (0x31) and 48 (0x30). It is being viewed in reverse byte order as the value 0x3031 which equals 12337 (48*256 + 49).
The LinkedServer is Pervasive SQL 2000i using 'OLE DB Provider for ODBC'
The START_ORDER_NO field is a Numeric(8,0)
I'm thinking some kind of Unicode, or translation or code page issue, but I haven't had any luck yet.
I'm not sure how difficult this is, I don't think I'm a neophyte but I'm feeling like one...
