Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, even when I explicitly enable E_WARNING or even E_ALL error reporting in php I still do not receive any indication that data was truncated on insert.

Dear Matt,

Even with MySQL, u get the warning as the show warnings is enabled. With php bound scripts, you have to check warnings to see the warnings. However, php is quite flexible and you an use error_reporting(E_WARNING) for non-fatal error reporting

           I'm trying to detect data truncation on insert to MySQL
           using PDO.

           As far as I can tell, this gets reported at least in some
           cases (ex:
           http://drupal.org/node/1528628), but I have been unable to
           see this

           The test table I'm using has a column that is VARCHAR(5):

           mysql>  describe test;
+-------+------------------+------+-----+--------- +-------+ | Field | Type | Null | Key | Default | Extra | +-------+------------------+------+-----+--------- +-------+ | id | int(10) unsigned | YES | | NULL | | | data | varchar(5) | YES | | NULL | | +-------+------------------+------+-----+--------- +-------+
           2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

           My test script inserts a ten character string into the 5
           character column:

           ==== PHP TEST CODE ====

           $pdo = new PDO(


           $retval = $pdo->query( 'INSERT INTO `test` (data) VALUES

           print_r( $retval );

           ==== END TEST CODE ====

           This results in a new row in the `test` table, truncated
           after the 5th
           character as expected, but the truncation is not reported.
           (running in
           php 5.3.2 and 5.3.4)
           Running the same query directly in the mysql command line
           shows a
           warning as expected.

           Am I missing something simple here?


       Caveat: I don't use PDO but maybe the PDO::ERRMODE_WARNING
       attribute may do
       what you want?


   Interesting idea. I gave it a try, but got the same result!
   I think PDO::ERRMODE_WARNING tells PDO to give PHP warnings versus
   throw exceptions when there are problems (if I'm understanding it

Forgive me if I am off, but why would you check to see if a string is truncated in your database? Wouldn't you just check to make sure a string is a certain length in PHP first and then instert it into the database?
Then you know for sure that nothing is getting truncated?
