What database are you connecting to and what is the exact type of remote column you are having problems with?
could you right-click on that column, choose Describe and paste a screenshot here?
I was connecting to an internal company database. While I don't know what caused the problem it isn't doing it anymore. There wasn't anything significant that I did that would have fixed the problem. I didn't take a screenshot of the issue but it was with a name column that was supposed to be first name and last name. An example of what I was seeing would be:
David (Which I assume was really "David ")
Definitely let us know if you see this again (screenshots, logs).
