I would like to push some data from my SQL Server to a linked MySQL server database. For that reason I have setup the MySQL database as a LinkedServer" on the SQL Server. SELECT statements work well, but INSERT statement return the follwing error messages:

INSERT INTO extranet...tbl_testing (alpha,beta) VALUES ('test','test');

OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "extranet" returned message "[MySQL][ODBC 5.3(w) Driver][mysqld-5.1.56-log]Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now".
Msg 7343, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
The OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "extranet" could not INSERT INTO table "[extranet]...[tbl_testing]".

Any idea or help?

- Win 2008 R2 Std 64bit
- SQL Server 2008 R2 SP3
- Query executed in MS SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2
- MySQL 5.1.56, using ODBC Driver 5.3 Unicode
- Provider MSDASQL with checked options NestedQueries,inprocess,LevelZero, Like support

kind regards,

The trick was to uncheck the ODBC option "Force Forward Only Cursor". This solved the problem.
