Option Description

Empty strings as NULL

To retrieve metadata, not all parameters according to MSDN can accept a null value. If NULL, the driver should return an error. But some 3rd-party tools pass NULL to the parameters. These options should be enabled for compatibility with such tools.

Allow NULL strings

String Types

Sets the string value types returned by the driver as Default, Ansi or Unicode.

  • Default - the driver defines the string types.
  • Ansi - all string types will be returned as SQL_CHAR, SQL_VARCHAR and SLQ_LONGVARCHAR.
  • Unicode - all string types will be returned as SQL_WCHAR, SQL_WVARCHAR and SLQ_WLONGVARCHAR.

The option value should be changed if any third-party tool supports only Ansi string types or Unicode ones.

RegionalNumberSettings

Enables using local regional settings when converting numbers to string.

RegionalDateTimeSettings

Enables using local regional settings when converting dates and times to string.

ConnectionTimeout
