    ODBC Connection missing Text Field data

    iamsloper

      I am using FMSA 11.3 as an ODBC Data source. When i connect to the data source from Windows using the 11.3.81 ODBC client update, i don't get text field data.

       

      Filemaker has a link about this:

      http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7865/related/1

       

      As suggested in this doc, i have checked the “Describe text fields as long varchar” checkbox but it doesn't seem to help. The only way i can get the text data is to uncheck this box and turn on char length validation for the field.

       

      What am i missing?
