When you update linked ODBC tables in a Microsoft Access database, an access violation occurs with the following message:
The instruction at '0x1b01a333' referenced memory at '0x0000000c'. The memory could not be 'read'.
This error message occurs when using Jet 4.0, and has occurred in both ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) and Data Access Objects (DAO) applications. The error can occur in a random fashion, and may not occur with every table update or in the same location each time.

Jet uses internal buffers for constructing the SQL UPDATE statement that is sent to the ODBC driver. An error in calculating the count of characters needed for the query causes a buffer overrun.
