ASP bugs

    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to track down some ASP bugs described at
    http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2188. Basically, I have some old
    code (that used SELECT *, used rs(...) syntax but did not first store
    the value in a variable before writing to the screen) and I'm trying to
    determine if this old code was affected by the bug when it was run.
    I'm trying to determine if there is a version of MDAC such that code
    running on that version or a newer version will not be affected by the
    bug, regardless of the coding practices used (or the method used to
    connect to the database).

    Apparently, this doesn't happen with MDAC 2.1sp2 or higher:

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your help. That KB article seems to refer to a bug where an
    error occurs--I'm concerned about the case described in that aspfaq
    article where there is no error, but the data simply doesn't show up at
    all or doesn't after the first time accessing the field. (Also, I'm
    concerned about the case with very large varchar columns, not text
    columns.) Were all of these bugs fixed at the same time? Also,
    someone in asp.db pointed out to me that in the "applies to" section,
    MDAC 2.6, 2.7, and 2.8 are referenced--any ideas as to why this would
    be?
