Sorry about the previous one, that was a mistake.

I have the following code to insert a blob into an access OLE object field:

if(($prepared_query=MetabasePrepareQuery($database,"UPDATE incident_blob SET
data_blob=?, description='new'")))



      echo "Error 1 (CreateLOB): $error\n";

  echo "Error 2 (Prepare): $error\n";

I can connect and query the database otherwise, and it works fine.  The
problem is with the Blobs, that update statement is not getting run.  There's
only 1 row in the table, but the description and ole object do not get
updated.  If I switch the driver to use mysql as opposed to odbc, it works
fine on an identical table (on linux, not windows).  Any ideas?
