I've noticed that SQL clients select the
SHAPE column from
SDE.ST_GEOMETRY in different ways:
select shape from roads
- SQL Developer:
- MS Access:
Error: Invalid field definition 'SHAPE' in definition of index or relationship. (I know MS Access isn't a real SQL client; but it helps demonstrate the point.)
What does the text that is returned from Toad represent? Is it the properties of the blob?
