If you encounter difficulties or problems with Connector/ODBC,
start by making a log file from the
Manager (the log you get when requesting logs from
ODBC ADMIN) and Connector/ODBC. The procedure
for doing this is described in
Section 188.8.131.52, “Getting an ODBC Trace File”.
Check the Connector/ODBC trace file to find out what could be
wrong. Determine what statements were issued by searching for
>mysql_real_query in the
Also, try issuing the statements from the
mysql client program or from
admndemo. This helps you determine whether
the error is in Connector/ODBC or MySQL.
If you find out something is wrong, please only send the
relevant rows (maximum 40 rows) to the
mailing list. See Section 1.7.1, “MySQL Mailing Lists”. Please never
send the whole Connector/ODBC or ODBC log file!
Ideally, include the following information with the email:
Operating system and version
ODBC Driver Manager type and version
MySQL server version
ODBC trace from Driver Manager
Connector/ODBC log file from Connector/ODBC driver
Simple reproducible sample
Remember that the more information you can supply to us, the more likely it is that we can fix the problem!
Also, before posting the bug, check the MyODBC mailing list archive at http://lists.mysql.com/myodbc.
If you are unable to find out what is wrong, the last option is
to create an archive in tar or
zip format that contains a Connector/ODBC
trace file, the ODBC log file, and a
file that explains the problem. Initiate a bug report for our
bugs database at http://bugs.mysql.com/, then
click the Files tab in the bug report for instructions on
uploading the archive to the bugs database. Only MySQL engineers
have access to the files you upload, and we are very discreet
with the data.
If you can create a program that also demonstrates the problem, please include it in the archive as well.
If the program works with another SQL server, include an ODBC log file where you perform exactly the same SQL statements so that we can compare the results between the two systems.
Remember that the more information you can supply to us, the more likely it is that we can fix the problem.
