Hello,

I just wanted to share this fix with rest of you folks. I spent almost a day trying to fix the problem.

Those who are trying to retrieve data from SQL Server 2005 using Microsoft's JDBC driver might get the following error message.

[Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC][SQLServer]The incoming tabular data stream (TDS) remote procedure call (RPC) protocol stream is incorrect. Parameter 1 (""): Data type 0x38 is unknown.

All you need to do is change the connection string.

Current : jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://<ServerName>:<PortNumber>;databaseName=<DatabaseName>;SelectMethod=Cursor

New: jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://<ServerName>:<PortNumber>;databaseName=<DatabaseName>;SelectMethod=Direct


By changing select method from Cursor to Direct you would be able to retrieve data.

HTH

Thanks for sharing that. What was the SQL statement you were trying to execute?

Any simple SELECT statements would throw that error message.
