ODBC and 255 characters

Seems that our FM13 ODBC driver with the 'Describe text fields as long varchar' box checked still only gets a maximum of 255 characters using the PHP odbc_result() method.

 

I am using the latest PHP from xampp on a PC running Windows 7 Home Premium and I have set up the drivers in odbcad32.

The Filemaker ODBC driver is Version 13.00.12.00. PHP is 5.5.1.1 and a build date of Apr 8 2014 15:01:59.

 

I am accessing FM through a server running FMserver 13.0.1 over Windows 7 Professional.

 

The exact same PHP code will extract all characters in the field when running on a mac.

 

Anyone else have a similar experience? Any suggestions? (Other than the obvious - run it on a mac!)

 

I thought this issue had been fixed a while ago with the check box.

 

Thanks for any answers...
