My apologies for disturbing you; must be very busy. I recently had a problem getting Maypole working; a problem I tracked down to Class::DBI::AsForm and described somewhat incoherently here: Now, looking at it again, I see that the reason column_type() was not returning as expected was a simple issue of capitalisation, which I fixed on my local copy quite easily. There's no point in doing a diff for one line (I don't think) but $VERSION 2.41, I changed line 98 to look like this: my $type = $class->column_type($field->accessor); Now, I don't have the facilities to test this on every DB server available and I don't know if this breaks some other behaviour somewhere but my tests are passing and I thought I should share my findings.
