I am using MS Access ODBC to interface with a Pervasive SQL 9.1 db.  I normally have no problems whatsoever, but at a particual client site, I cannot edit (or append) any date records.  As soon as I enter a date (or try to add a record with dates in it) I get an Invalid Precision Value (#0) error.  It seems this has just started happening.

Anyone have any ideas around this problem?  I have tried the db with Access 2003, 2007 with the same results.

RE: invalid precision value

Is the error only occurring at one site?  If so, what's different about that one site?  What is the exact version of PSQL being used (v9.1x.xxx.xxx)?  Have you considered updating to v9.52 (SP2 plus Update)?
