PowerBuilder 5.0.3 strange problem with SQL Server 7.0

Hi,

        I am doing a simple select statment in a PB script, it works fine if
I am connected to a SQL Anywhere DB with odbc, but the same code will not
work if I am connected to MS SQL Server!
The code is something like:

int li_total

Select count(*) from sfref into :li_total;

I will not get an SQL error BUT li_total will not be updated!! Howerver the
same code will work fine with SQL Anywere!

Any help would be great!!

Don't know why it works at all, it's not standard syntax.  Maybe something
that works in SQL Anywhere.  Anyway, it should be:
Select count(*) into :li_total from sfref;

Hi,

Could you please send me your connection parameters?
We are trying to connect with MS SQL 7.0 from PB 6.0/6.5 via ODBC, but with
every SELECT statement we get an error:
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager]Program type out of range.

Thanks in advance

I have found similar problems to you all. I am hoping it is a bug in Beta 3
of SQL server 7.0 ODBC Driver. Something to do with it getting its data
types in a twist. I have been using the MSS SQL server 6.x interface to test
with.

I'm getting the same error.   If anyone has the resolution to this, I would
greatly appreciate it?  It seems that some people are able to work with 7.0
based on their comments.
TIA
