Right now I'm  using select/insert/update/delete and some stored procedures
for text fields. Almost everything we have is a "data-entry" type of app.
There isn't too much complex SQL, except in stored procedures. Have you had
any problems with TWFreeTDS and stored procedures? Or with text fields
(especially if the text has over 5,000 characters)? 

Thanks in advance for your help!
