I am using mySQL through ODBC and I am getting a strange error. If the value in the database is an empty string, I get errors if I try to access the data through a data reader. Almost no matter how I try access it or check for it being null, I get in trouble.<BR><BR>myReader["data"] or myReader["data"].ToString() or myReader.IsDBNull(0) all give me <BR>Microsoft.Data.Odbc.OdbcException: NO_DATA - no error information available<BR><BR>Does anyone have an idea as to how I might either check for this or set up the connection or mySQL so that I can check for it?
