Thanks Robby - I will take a look on the MS site and see if I can find it!

Hi Dana,

> Are you suggesting using an MS implementation of the Oracle ODBC driver?

Yes. I ended up using the "Microsoft ODBC for Oracle" driver. I'm not exactly sure if it is there by default or if it was something that got added to my system when I installed MSSQL. It shows up in the list of drivers when creating a new ODBC DSN in the Administrative Tools->Data Sources GUI.

I think there may be some miscommunication going on between Microsoft's ODBC Driver Manager and the Oracle ODBC driver, which is tickled by the way the some ODBC interfaces use SQLGetInfo(). But I have not had the energy to go and figure out out.
