we have searched for over 6 months for errors in our application. We had some customers, reporting false values within some fields. I think i have found an bug.

create a application with two tadstable (both are linked to the same table) components bound to a dictionary.

you need a table in your dictionary at least with 3 fields: 1. field: vpos, char(20) 2. field: vname, nchar(16) 3. field: vnumber: integer

now use following function to copy:

procedure CopyTableData(von: tdataset; nach: tdataset); var i1, vfieldcount: integer; feld: string; begin nach.append; vfieldcount := von.fields.count;

// copy all fields
// this is working without problems
for i1 := 1 to vfieldcount do
    feld := von.fields[i1 - 1].FullName;
    if nach.FindField(feld) <> NIL then
        if (nach.FindField(feld).FieldKind <> fkLookup) then
                nach.fieldvalues[feld] := von.fieldvalues[feld] except

// define
nach.fieldvalues['vname']:='ALEXANDER BOBRICK';

// this has produced:
// vnumber = 75 (ascii code of K !!!)



Call this function as follows:

copytabledata(myfirstTable, mySecondTable);

the overflow of field vname produces 75 in field vnumber or in the next field within your table-structure!!

we're using delphi XE2 with ads-components (ACE 10.10) connected to a windows-ads-server, 64bit, Version

Urgent help needed!

Now i see, everywhere we assign a value bigger than the nchar field is overwriting the next field in table structure!

Same behaviour also with ads-components in delphi-xe2 in version;

Same problem with ads-server (windows) and client-dll

Assigning the fieldvalue with "nach.fieldbyname('vname').asstring" is also overwriting the next field

Thank you for the bug report! This bug will be fixed in the next TDataSet update, which will be released very soon. (Incidentally, we are currently testing a TDataSet version that supports Delphi XE5. The fix for this bug will be added to the new XE5 release.) I will update this response when the fix is available with the specific version number that you need to download.

Update: The updated components are now available in the download section of the DevZone. Look for version or (based on what's appropriate for your server version.)

Is it enough to update the delphi tdataset or do i need update all client-dlls to

(25 Sep '13, 07:21) MicrotronX

It is sufficient to update the TDataSet and build your application with the new TDataSet. (Installing the new TDataSet will also install the new DLLs to your machine; but you do not need to distribute new DLLs for this fix.)
