Q

Windows and SQL Servers 2003 and their MDAC versions

With Windows Server 2003 (standard) and SQL Server 2003, can an MDAC version prior to V2.8 be used? Our core application faces the problem reported in MS KB 838405 ("Argument passed to data shaping service was invalid" error after you apply MDAC 2.8).
I believe that there is an update for MDAC 2.8 that resolves your issue. Check MS KB article 839801. The hotfix removes all restrictions on the length of the query string and removes the restrictions on the number of levels that are permitted in the query.
This was first published in March 2005
