PHP7 ODBC extension does not function properly with SAP 16 ODBC Driver


Hello everyone,

Our application is PHP-based (version 7.2). Unfortunately, since version 7, the PHP have dropped the native Sybase database driver, so our App uses now the ODBC extension. That's why I have also asked this question:

While the ODBC driver of Sybase version 15.5 seems to work reasonably well, the ODBC driver delivered with SAP version 16 makes troubles. We cannot retrieve any database field of type: datetime, big- and smalldatetime. What we are receiving is an empty string.

Are there any similar cases or workarounds reported?

Many thanks.
