[Solved] query exec fails when trying to write from qt to MS Sql database in windows using ODBC

  • Hi,

    I connect to my MSSQL database with odbc and writing data to it. I am not sure why I get the error:

    QODBCResult::exec: unable to bind variable: "[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Optional feature not implemented"

    bool DataManager::registerClient(Client&)

    "INSERT INTO ClientMaster (first_name, mid_name, last_name, phone_number, email_id, address_line1, address_line2, address_line3, dob) VALUES (xxx, xxx , xxx, +xxx-xxx, xx, xx, x, x, 1987-08-30)"

    bool DataManager::registerClient(Client&) error "[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Optional feature not implemented QODBC3: Unable to bind variable"

    @ mDatabase = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QODBC");

    mDatabase.setDatabaseName("DRIVER={SQL SERVER};SERVER=localhost;DATABASE=GLINK_CLIENT_MGMNT;");

    @QSqlQuery query(mDatabase);

            query.prepare("INSERT INTO ClientMaster (first_name, mid_name, last_name, phone_number, "
                            "email_id, address_line1, address_line2, address_line3, dob)"
                          "VALUES (:first_name, :mid_name, :last_name, :phone_number, :email_id, "
                            ":address_line1, :address_line2, :address_line3, :dob)");
            QString phoneNumber = "+";
            query.bindValue(":first_name", client.firstName);
            query.bindValue(":mid_name", client.midName);
            query.bindValue(":last_name", client.lastName);
            query.bindValue(":phone_number", phoneNumber);
            query.bindValue(":email_id", client.emailId);
            query.bindValue(":address_line1", client.addressLine1);
            query.bindValue(":address_line2", client.addressLine2);
            query.bindValue(":address_line3", client.addressLine3);
            query.bindValue(":dob", client.dob);
            regStatus = query.exec();@

  • Hi, just a guess but in your query.prepare() string, line 3: "....address_line3, dob)"
    and line 4: "VALUES (:first_name,..."
    shouldn't it there be a space between them,
    i.e. line 4: " VALUES (:first_name,..."

  • Thanks hskoglund,

    But it doesn't work.. I had found the same and had edited the code. In the logs I show the query executed. You can see there is space before "VALUES". I think the code i posted is before edit. sorry.

  • Hi, did you look at query.lastError after query.exec()?
    And is "xxx, xxx,... " what you expect as the content of client.firstName... ?

  • Hi Clochydd,

    lastError is

    “[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Optional feature not implemented QODBC3: Unable to bind variable”

    yes.. there is real data in xxx which comes from client instance. I just hided it with xxx.

  • Hi Abin, I would try this:

    1. Use only one parameter, if successful two parm...
    2. If this is not useful, replace client.firstName with a QString...
      (I guess the error message points to a problem with datatypes)

  • Thanks all,

    The issue got resolved. I hope the below case is the specific reason for the issue.

    I gave date input in the format (yyyy-MM-dd), ie
    query.bindValue(":dob", client.dob.toString(yyyy-MM-dd));

    It works fine... :)

    I came to know that MS Sql takes date in the particular format only. I not certain about this, however it works fine now...
