DataWindow updates to a SQL Server 2005 database column type
Varchar are padded with extra spaces when applciation is
deployed to Appeon.

The same application running under Client Server works
perfectly well.

Any suggestions please - we are moving to End User testing
with a major app this week and this is a critical Show

Hi Jim,
According to my test there is no problem on my side. Could
you check your table definition? The column type is varchar
or char?
Could you provide us with the table define scripts in SQL
Server 2005 and datawindow syntax?
