This most likely depends on the fact that the odbc-driver  you are using 
is  implemented using ODBC-2.X standard and not 3.Y.
The Erlang ODBC application is designed using the version 3.0 of the 
ODBC-standard, however using the option |{scrollable_cursors, off} | for 
a connection has been known to make it work for at least some 2.X 
drivers. Did  you  try that?
