Hi !!

Can you be more specific with the bug report ? Like when its occuring and what is your Connector/ODBC version and what is your MySQL server version and OS its running.

Also from your report, the error is from MyODBC 2.50, where in your connection string belongs to Connector/ODBC 3.51. Is it something that I missed or ..? 

And, thanks for contacting MySQL.

I am surely know that this error not becoz of the connection string.

I am getting error while executing query.

I am getting error 

>ADODB.Recordset.1 error '80004005' 

>SQLState: S1000

>Native Error Code: 2013

>[TCX][MyODBC]Lost connection to MySQL server during query

in the database the value of the variables
connection_timeout is set to "5"
wait_timeout is set to "600"

may the error cause due to these values?

if so how do i change these values?

in mysql manual , i have seen that it should be updated in mysqld file

but i don't know how i execute mysqld file to change these values.

pls Help me to come out from this problem.

Thanking You!

Hi !! 

The reason why I asked for connection string is that, you are using Connector/ODBC 3.51 connection string, but the error that you are getting is from Connector/ODBC 2.50 old driver. You can distinguish both the drivers from its error prefix as they have this error prefixes: 

Connector/ODBC 2.50: [Tcx][MySQL]
Connector/ODBC 3.51: [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-$version]
Connector/ODBC 3.52: [MySQL][ODBC 3.52 Driver][mysqld-$version]

So, just I wanted to make sure that, you reinstall the 3.51 driver from its installer.

Coming to your Lost connection issue, there are mainly 2 reasons for this error.

1. You might be using MySQL server installed in Redhat Linux from its own distribution and not directly from www.mysql.com. If this is the case, can you please reinstall MySQL server downloading from:
or by applying the Redhat errata from: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=75128

2. Your packet size is too big to send in a single transmission, and try to increase it to fix your needs.

If none of them are in your case, it will be good if you can attach a simple reproduciable test case.

Thanks and sorry for the delay in answering this bug report.
