Unanswered: getString throws unknown exception for "text" field - sybase 11.0
I am using Sybase ASE 12.0 DB and odbc++ api to access data from the db.
The problem happens when customers have sybase system 11 driver dll with version 3.00 installed in their machines.
FileName - sysybnt.dll
Location(mostly) - C:\Program Files\Sybase\Sybase system 11
Version which works for us-3.11
Version which DOES NOT work for us-3.00
It looks that this driver has a bug when you odbc++ getString call for a "text" field.
Has anyone faced a similar issue ?
1 option for us to upgrade drivers on every customer's machine but that doesn not seem to be a viable option.
Is there some other workaround that can be done here ? The only reason why we are using "text" field is because our col can get data till 30k characters. Is there any other col type which we can use ??
