My sql select / fetch / sqlread statements are not returning the full string of a field in a table. It also incorrectly identifies the type of the fields. In the first figure below, you can see the data type for the field 'data', and its contents.
in the next figure, you can see the query and the result. It is only giving me the single quote character. Previously, I did not have quotes around this data, and it was giving me the first character (0, -, 1, etc...), so adding the quotes didn't change anything.
When querying with raw sql or python or c# I do not have this issue. Please help! Thanks.
