As far as the unicode table goes, the log is showing:
2001-12-03 16:06:23 Msg 4004, Level 16, State 1, Server SCC-NT-IVR, Line 1
ntext data cannot be sent to clients using DB-Library (such as ISQL) or
ODBC version 3.7 or earlier.
Which basically means that TDS version 4.2 does not support unicode
fields. I need to look into why the error is not propagating up to the
ODBC driver. Unicode support in general in freetds is a little spotty,
look at the 'client charset' settings in freetds.conf (see:
So, by specifying tds version = 7.0 in freetds.conf I am not actually accomplishing anything? it was my understanding that I need to compile with tdsver=4.2 and then add 7.0 to the conf file.
What should i have in the client charset? I was thinking it defaults to something that fits US.
As far as non-unicode goes, I'm not seeing anything strange in the log,
can you post either the ddl for your table or the output of sp_help on it?
