SYMPTOMS

When you use the SQLBulkOperations function or the SQLSetPos ODBC function to insert explicit values in a SQL Server IDENTITY column, the ODBC function may not run successfully, and you may receive the following error message:

DIAG [37000] [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Explicit value must be specified for identity column in table 'new_employees' when IDENTITY_INSERT is set to ON. (545)

This problem occurs even when you set the IDENTITY_INSERT option to ON for the table that contains the IDENTITY column.

CAUSE

Even if the IDENTITY_INSERT option is set to ON, SQL Server incorrectly sends the status of the IDENTITY column as not updateable. Because the ODBC driver relies on the updateability status of the IDENTITY column, the ODBC driver assumes that the IDENTITY column is not updateable. Therefore, the ODBC driver skips the column when you use the SQLBulkOperations or the SQLSetPos ODBC function to insert explicit values in a SQL Server IDENTITY column.
