I'm using PostgreSQL on a Windows 2000 server and cygwin.  All is set up 
just fine.  The database works just fine, and ASP is connecting to the 
database through a DSN just fine.  The only problem I seem to have is 
adding a large amount of text to a text column in the database.  I can 
enter up to 8,118 characters (including spaces), but when I go over that 
amount, I receive the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e21'
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB 
status value, if available. No work was done.

This error doesn't mean  much to me.  I've spent a month researching it 
and trying to figure out what it means in our situation, but I have yet 
to resolve it.  Thus, I'm turning to this list to see if anyone has any 
ideas or has tackled this problem before.

I've tried using the appendChunk method in ASP to add chunks to the 
field in the database (this worked before for us on a Linux box running 
ChiliSoft ASP), but I get another error saying that the method is not 
supported.  We are using psqlODBC to connect with the DSN--I do not know 
if this driver has anything to do with this circumstance.
I am currently using ADO to update the database, but I have used a 
standard SQL INSERT statement for testing, and I get the same error and 
problem.  When I've run an INSERT query against the database itself 
(from the command prompt), it won't update the record when I try 
inserting more than 8,118 characters into a text column.

I've double-checked to make sure the column is of datatype "text" and 
not anything else.  It is.  So, it should accept unlimited text, right?

Has anyone seen this problem before?  I need help ASAP because our 
client is refusing to pay until this is resolved.
