Several of you have kindly sent me examples of bugs in RODBC, but none
of them reproduce on my systems. I am fairly sure I know what is
happening, and that it is client-specific. (Do empty strings get returned
as "", NULL or skipped?) Also, empty character fields were getting mapped
to NA. There's a comment in the code that fields need to set to a null
string, and that was only being done for the first row.
If my diagnosis is right, I have a fix (and have simpilfied the code a
lot en route).
I'd be grateful for confirmation (or otherwise).
BTW, although I have altered the code to compile under R-devel, it does not
work correctly for me as yet.
