Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

I am trying to insert into a column CLOB format ( CLOB(10k) declaration ) values from one multiline object.  
The value is inserted but the return character is not preserved so I have lost the format of the text.
Any idea ?


RE: Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

What is the code you are using?

RE: Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

Table definition is
Create table test( t_id char(4), t_text clob(10k));

The code is
set sInsert = 'INSERT INTO test(t_id, t_text) values ('0001', 'Line1
Call SqlConnect( hSql )
Call SqlPrepareAndExecute( hSql,sInsert )
Call SqlCommit( hSql )
Call SqlDisconnect( hSql )

The row is inserted in the table but the character CR+LF in the t_text field disappeared.

I don't want to use the INSERT INTO test( t_id, t_text) values (:sId, :lsText ) format.


RE: Problem with CLOB and SQLWindows 2.0

I think what happens is that the ODBC driver will mess with the statement you execute and remove things like carriage returns and extra spaces.

Try SQLExecDirect instead of SQLPrepareAndExecute.

This problem occurs when creating procedures via ODBC also.

Check out Mimer article on creating stored procedures via ODBC, particularly the NoScan.bas module.
