When trying to bind parameters to a prepared statement, bindValue() and 
bindParam() both return false with the error code HY004, [SQL Server Native Client 
11.0]Invalid SQL data type (SQLBindParameter[0] at /build/buildd/php5-

It does not matter whether you pass in PDO::PARAM_STR or PARAM_INT or no data type 
specification, the error is the same every time.

Using parameters with odbc_connect() and odbc_prepare() work as expected, so the 
issue is directly related to PDO, not to ODBC or Microsoft's driver.

Test script:
$db = new PDO('odbc:sqltest', 'wwwuser', 'btsb');

$strSql = 'select top 10 * from oltmaster where titleno = :no';

$q = $db->prepare($strSql);

var_dump($q->bindValue(':no', '029803'));

Expected result:
boolean true

  0 => string '' (length=0)
  1 => int 0
  2 => string ' ((null)[0] at (null):0)' (length=24)
  3 => string '' (length=0)

Actual result:
boolean false

  0 => string 'HY004' (length=5)
  1 => int 0
  2 => string '[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0]Invalid SQL data type 
(SQLBindParameter[0] at /build/buildd/php5-5.3.10/ext/pdo_odbc/odbc_stmt.c:379)' 
  3 => string 'HY004' (length=5)

Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64
PHP 5.3.3 (also reproducible under PHP 5.4.0-3)

The test case and error information are exactly the same.

I believe this is related to the SQLLEN.  PHP bug 5044 has a patch.

MS bug here where developer says its SQLLEN:

I applied the patches in bug 50444 and now it's working for me.

Can confirm that patches in bug 50444 correct this issue for me as well.

I can verify this bug still occurs on php 5.3.19 and php 5.4.6 as well.

php 5.3.19 running on Windows experiences a slightly different version of this problem when talking to SQL Server via ODBC: bound parameters work, as long as you're not comparing them directly to date datatype columns (date, timestamp, etc) - if you are, you have to cast them manually from varchar to date, or if you're using a stored procedure with input parameters you have to set any date input parameters to varchar and allow the server to infer the datatype conversion when comparing the input parameter(a varchar holding a date, timestamp, etc) to an actual date,timestamp,etc column.

Are there plans to address this issue in an upcoming php release?  

This is a serious issue for those of us that would like to use the native MS SQL Server driver since that is the best "Enterprise" solution for connecting to SQL Server on Linux.

I have same problem, binding booleans as true and false, works well using 0 and 1.
