Thanks a lot for this solution. As a matter of fact, the module
compilation already have the DBDEBUG flag but i didn't compile my
library with this flag. I passed this famous flag to my lib
compilation and all works fine ! No more problem to access every
fields of structure REQUEST. Once again thanks !
