Good Morning Everyone,
I had a perfectly good working application written in VB that tied to a PG database on a Red Hat system with the latest ODBC driver.
After working on the app for awhile, I had to re-write the database layout based on user requests.  I made some field names longer and others shorter, and generally "neatened things up".  Why does "neatening things up" always break it? :).  
Of course, I didn't document the old layout, so I can't compare where things went wrong.  (Mental note, save printouts of the database layout)
On Friday, "select * from schedule" in the statement would cause a "division by zero" error.  In debugging it, I got up to "select id,quote_number,price_required,bid_date,bid_time,project_name from schedule" before I had to leave for the day.  On Monday morning I'm going to start debugging the app from that point, but I was wondering if anyone could see anything that I would need to watch out for in the layout below.  Or that would cause select * to bomb out.
thanks in advance
