Foxpro server sql updating
OLE DB provider "VFPOLEDB" for linked server "util" returned message "Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Great stuff, particularly note the change in provider string for SQL 2008, Allow In Process setting and also check permissions on the folder as they will require the user account to have permissions as opposed to the sqlserver identity.
We'll talk about the things that you don't want to do in SQL if you want to simplify programming (always a good thing).Just in case this was some anomaly based on the fact I was attempting to update the field I was filtering on, I tried this: Which reported as having updated 1 record but changed nothing. Is there some sort of post-command process I need to invoke, like there is when you mark records for deletion and then have the actual delete step? Has the same effect - it says it's replaced 4 million records, but the data doesn't seem to change.I have discovered that I cannot seem to add fields to the table either, which suggests some kind of lock. It may be that the table structure is only one character for the gender as one can only be either biologically Male or Female and the short reference of "M" or "F" respectively.VFP is just not nagging you that you are trying to write a larger string value than the column in the table can handle and thus only keeping the "F" out of "FEMALE" attempt.If you want the output in some report to show the full gender reference, you could do something like this in your sql query to get the data.
