Only for MySQL 5.0.4-beta

This simple select fails to open/execute through an ADO recordest and MyODBC in a VB6 App

"SELECT (12.4767-6)*1000/7.2659"

The above SQL returns the correct result in query browser (JDBC?)

How to repeat:
Try to open an ADO recordset connected to a MySQL 5.0.4-beta server through MyODBC with the following source SQL

"SELECT (12.4767-6)*1000/7.2659"

The data provider returns:

"Multiple-step operation generated errors. Check each status value."

I was unable to reproduce this bug using 3.51.11-2 connecting to 5.0.3:

C:\my\mysql\bin>imyodbc mysql
| Connected!                            |
|                                       |
| sql-statement                         |
| help [tablename]                      |
| quit                                  |
|                                       |

This VB6 app displays the bug. It needs a System ODBC datasource named "MySQL"

The bug only appears when using the Microsoft OLEDB for ODBC provider along with ADO. I've attached a VB6 app that reproduces the error. I'll try VC6 as well when I get the time

I've been trying to upload a VC6 app (500KB) that displays the bug but I can't for some reason.

The thing is the problem appears on any division even SELECT 1/2 causes it.

The VC6 app (not by me, needs to be compiled). Connect through the ODBC driver and query "SELECT 1/2"

I can't repeat this bug with MyODBC 3.51.21 and MySQL 5.1.21.

Please, try again with newer version of MyODBC. We recommend to use MyODBC 3.51 or MyODBC 5.1.

Fix committed into svn r983, will be released in Connector/ODBC 5.1.2.
[10 Jan 2008 9:25] MC Brown
A note has been added to the 5.1.2 changelog: 

Evaluating a simple numeric expression when using the OLEDB for ODBC provider and ADO would return an error, instead of the result.
