FAQ: Why do I see column names but no records when I preview an OLE DB table in ArcGIS?

Question

Why do I see column names but no records when I preview an OLE DB table in ArcGIS?

Answer

This behavior may happen when trying to preview an OLE DB table in ArcGIS, which contains more than one BLOB field. The table columns will be returned, but the table will not contain any data.

One possible work-around for this is to change the datatype of one or more of the BLOB fields to another datatype.
