DBD::ODBC has a new rt from Bruce Tanner at Invalid precision value (SQL-HY104) with DBD-ODBC 1.23
. Thanks Bruce, one of the few people who keep testing DBD::ODBC, I only wish there were more - see Help me
I have to be honest and admit this rt was reported 2 weeks ago now and I just have not got around to reproducing it. I have been really busy with other things and regret not looking at this sooner as it is rare to get someone like Bruce who stays on top of DBD::ODBC versions and tests each one. The main problem is it is just so difficult to reproduce with so many versions of the MS SQL Server driver and MS ODBC Driver Manager. DBD::ODBC already has a large number of workarounds for bugs in the MS SQL Server driver and the native client driver and I'm reaching the point where I'm oscillating between fixing the latest issue and breaking an older issue again :-(
Anyway, I'm putting this in my blog entry so Bruce and anyone else can hold me to task if I don't sort this one out. If I haven't done so in a week feel free to nag me and tell me I've broken a promise.
