Subject: DBlib BCP fails under Syb11.9.2.3
Date: Aug 30 2000 5:06PM

We recently upgraded from 11.5 to 11.9 and started seeing 
Sybperl BCP failures. What happens is if you bcp into the 
table that has numeric column BCP fails as following:

error: Sybase error: 'Unknown datatype encountered.'

error: Sybase error: 'Requested data-conversion does not exist.'

error: Problem in initializing BCP, bcp_meminit() retruned '3'

changing column datatype to float, int, char, varchar fixes
this error but unfortunatelly in not an option.

Had anybody seen this? Is there a work around?

We use OC11.1.1 with ebf9065

Thank you,
