2132562 - ODBC: SQLNumResultCols results in infinite loop on case insensitive ASE - SAP SDK


  • A registry entry was provided to handle a specific case sensitivity issue. The key was "IDCaseWorkAround= 1". That is in place currently.
  • Upon upgrading, this value causes an infinite loop based on the sql "select * from tablename where 1 = 2".
  • By changing the value to "IDCaseWorkAround = 0", the infinite loop goes away.
  • But another issue "Insufficient key column information for updating or refreshing" comes up.



  • ASE 15.7 with charset cp437 with sort order case insensitive
  • SDK 15.7 ODBC(sybdrvodb.dll)  15.7.1100
