Which ODBC driver is this? Which vendor? Where did you get it?

What is the CHARACTER SET defined in your CREATE DATABASE statement?

If this varchar happens to be UNICODE_FSS then it will have only half the
character count indicated by its length because the characters are
2-byte. So, also check out the DDL for this column in the table to see if
it has a different CHAR SET than the other varchars.

Well, perhaps you weren't looking at the stored data the first time.
