ODBC, adLongVarChar not returning

ODBC, adLongVarChar not returning

ODBC, adLongVarChar not returning

ODBC, adLongVarChar not returning


I'm trying to use VBA with the Remedy ODBC driver to download some
data.  Most of it works fine until I get to a field of type
adLongVarChar.  I use the GetChunk method to return data from it
(since the value propery is always null), but this returns empty most
of the time and only occasionally returns the correct data.

Would anyone here be able to help me?

My code is below.



Function get_adLongVarChar(sql As String, Conn As ADODB.Connection) As

    On Error Resume Next

    Dim RS As ADODB.Recordset
    Set RS = New ADODB.Recordset
    RS.Open sql, Conn
    get_adLongVarChar = RS(0)
    Set RS = Nothing

End Function

Sub test()

    Dim sql As String
    Dim v0
    Dim Conn As ADODB.Connection
    Set Conn = New ADODB.Connection
    Conn.Open "DSN=RemedyODBC"
    sql = "SELECT " & _
        " problem_details " & _
        " FROM Global_Problem_Management " & _
        " WHERE ticket_id='123456'" & _
        " ORDER BY Create_Date DESC" '
    v0 = get_adLongVarChar(sql, Conn)
    MsgBox v0
    Set Conn = Nothing

End Sub
