We have a wierd problem with one of our BDE installations.
If we create a new ODBC DSN (SQL Server), an alias is created by the BDE Admin, so far so good. You can edit the alias and set it's property, also the BLOBSIZE property, it is visible.
BUT: After closing and reopening the BDE Admin application and clicking on the newly created alias, the BLOBSIZE property is not visible anymore ??!! We had a similar problem some years ago and I cannot remember how we solved it.
What we tried: 1) Reinstall MDAC 2.6 2) Reinstall BDE 5.x 3) Redefinde DSN 4) Redefine BDE Alias
but nothing helped, the BLOBSIZE parameter disappears after the first use.
