Y'all I've got the weirdest thing. I've got a database that's SQL Server and I connect to it all the time. Tonight, when doing one join that I know worked a year ago, I only get back the first digit from each character field. Other data types return the whole thing, but not character
I end up with a mess like this:
After a few hours of all the usual tests and checks (including rebooting), I am going to go through and try and produce a reproducible example. I can't quite figure out how to reproduce, tbh. But I'll work on it. Before I do, have any of you seen this type of hot mess? Googling for this is hard because of the search noise of people WANTING only the first character.
I'll come back later with reprex, if I can make one. But I thought I'd put out my feelers before I dumped more hours into this.
