Hi Jure,

our Server is MS SQL Server 2017

we used the ODBC Driver "SQL Server" and now "ODBC Driver 17 for SQL 
Both ar okay, but Security made us changing to "ODBC Driver 17 for SQL 

With normal fields (text, numbers, Integer) no problems.

BLOBS are special
Date and Time do not work, DateTime is okay using TimeStamp Fields On 
SQL Server.

SQL Server ==> Paradox is very fast

Paradox ==> SQL Server is slow.
Updating tables on SQL Server best via SQL-Statments.
Tcursor are in Trouble with DateTime-Fields.
Memo fields are best via TCursor - using 2 steps
1st all other data via SQL
2nd Memo -Fields via Tcursor

"merging" a local Table to SQL Server:
1st Create tmp table on SQL Server
2nd Update tmp table on SQL Server from Paradox
3rd use SQL Merge on SQL Server

reading not compatible data form SQL Server
use CAST
