Reports that worked in 10g throw the following error after upgrading to 11g:

State: HY000. Code: 10058. [NQODBC] [SQL_STATE: HY000] [nQSError: 10058] A general error has occurred. [nQSError: 43113] Message returned from OBIS. [nQSError: 43119] Query Failed: [nQSError: 22020] Function Subtring (argument 1) does not support non-text types. (HY000)


Additionally, (after upgrading from 10g to 11g) the error can also be encountered (in the nqserver.log file) when trying to expand presentation folders when creating a new analysis in Answers.  The user may find that they are unable to expand child folders (and their columns) present under a parent folder in the presentation layer when creating a new analysis.  When clicking on these folders, the icon just blinks.  In the nqserver.log file the above error is found.
