DataServer for Microsoft SQL Server
Migration Issues : Modifying your application

Modifying your application

Note the following considerations and plan, as needed:
*The DataServer for MS SQL Server supports the same functionality as the DataServer for ODBC. Therefore, you do not have to change your application. However, if you used any reference to DBTYPE as ODBC, you will have to change these to MS SQL Server.
*Determine your application needs and goals before changing INTEGER data types to INT64 data types in applications. Not all INTEGER data types will necessarily require the additional bit size, nor will wholesale changes in data types necessarily work efficiently with other interfaces to ABL. To review additional considerations about determining when to use INT64 versus INTEGER, see Release 10 ABL Data Types Web paper available at the Web paper category of the PSDN Web site located at
