ODBC shadow field definitions won't update


Hi All,

I have a few shadow tables from an SQL Server data source in my firm's FileMaker 9 database. I recently updated a number of the fields to make them larger, and I can't get the shadow fields to reflect the changes. They still have the old "maximum number of characters" validation based on the fields' original lengths. I've tried syncing the tables, and even deleting the shadow table and re-establishing it, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas on how I can get these to update?
