Solving the ODBC "Data truncated" error

When you derive a class from CRecordset, the default maximum length assigned by the AppWizard for a string or array during a transfer is 255. A "Data Truncated" error is displayed whenever you attempt to transfer records with fields bigger than that.

To solve the problem, specify the length required as the fourth parameter of the RFX_Text() function in the AFX_FIELD_MAP section of your CRecordset derived class method file. The maximum length you can set it to is INT_MAX (2147483647) which is the maximum length of a CString object.

The source below shows the COST_INFO and BENEFITS columns of the table accessed being assigned a maximum length of 1000 characters each.


//{{AFX_FIELD_MAP(CProjectsSet)
RFX_Text(pFX, _T("[COST_INFO]"), m_COST_INFO, 1000);
RFX_Text(pFX, _T("[BENEFITS]"), m_BENEFITS, 1000);
//}}AFX_FIELD_MAP

  • Is this true for SQL server 6.5

    Is this true or does this RFX_TEXT change will allow longer strings on SQL server 6.5 too?

    The same problem occures if you use Binary fields.
    RFX_Binary() also supports the third parameter for the maximum length, witch is also 255 as default.
    This works verry well here, BUT the ClassWizzard is unable to handle this.... It allways shows up a Messagebox telling you:
    Parsing Error: Expected ")".
    Input Line: "RFX_Binary(pFC, _T([Fieldname]"), m_Variable, 1000);"

    Possible Solution (not testet until now):
    Place the RFX_Text (or RFX_Binary) outside the ClassWizzard Insert comments:
    //{{AFX_FIELD_MAP(CCLClientBinaryRecordset)
    RFX_Text(pFX, _T("[TextField]"), m_Text);
    //}}AFX_FIELD_MAP
    RFX_Binary(pFX, _T("[BinaryField]"), m_Binary, 0x40000);

    greetings
