Error description

  • When using multiple types of databases connected via ODBC in
    MS-Access,
    all the connections reference to tables with a Boolean data
    type,
    but when looking at the "translation" of the linked table coming
    from Db2
    the data type Boolean is translated to Text instead of a Numeric
    or even better a Boolean counter type.
