In that case, your best bet is to post your problem to the Easysoft support
list. Given that Easysoft has made many bug-fixes available to their
registered users, it could be that you are looking at a bug that has been
fixed already.

The point I was trying to get to was to eliminate any special
characteristic of your database as a source of your truncation problem...

That is only true if your inserts are being autocommitted - otherwise you
must take explicit control of the transaction and commit it yourself.

If so, then your application is not refreshing the data
correctly. Definitely something to address to Easysoft.

It should be addressed to the list. It is not good etiquette to send
private emails unless you are invited to; and, generally, you are much
more likely to get a complete answer to your problem if there are many
pairs of eyes on it.
