Hello, Monks. Like many I have struggled with trying to insert data in Access memo fields using DBI. Some of you have kindly explained how to do that in the posting below:
I used to be able to insert info in memo fields in my Access database by binding the data using DBI::SQL_LONGVARCHAR. However, every since I upgraded DBD-ODBC to version 1.21, everytime I try to do that I get:
DBD::ODBC::st bind_param failed: Microsoft ODBC Microsoft Access Driver Invalid precision value (SQL-HY104)
If I use the column_info method to get the data type of the memo field, I get LONGCHAR instead of LONGVARCHAR. That does not work either, and I get the same message. Interesting enough, I do not have this problem if the data been inserted is smaller than 255 characters, even if it is a memo field. I also can insert data without a problem in INTEGER or VARCHAR fields. Any ideas?
Thanks for your ever wise and kind guidance.
