3098659 - Requesting datetime column information with sp_odbc_columns returns ODBC 2.0 standard 11 for DATA_TYPE instead of ODBC 3.0 standard 93 - SDK for SAP ASE


  • SQL Server has a new proxy table system in version 2019.  This causes issues with a datetime column.
    Error :: Msg 110813, Level 16, State 1, Line 13
       Unknown type Timestamp at GetSqlTypeId.
  • This error appears because when getting the column information, ASE returns 11 which isn't supported any longer. It is expecting 93.
