Subject TIBOTable Weirdness
Author Robert martin

We have an application that is using TIBOTable (for legacy reasons) that
has recently started to fail. We increased the size of a field to 3072
characters (varChar) from about 70. Now when this field is accessed
using Table.AsString instead of returning an empty string (when NULL) is
returns 8222 empty spaces. Table.IsNull returns true. It is relatively
easy to fix the code (just use an isNUll test). However it seems their
might be some bug with the code if the functionality changes with
increased field sizes.

We are using IBO v 4.8.6
