Well then that is strange! I am only saying this seems to be in the
driver but it would not be the first time though something
that should not affect something turns out to do so ;). If that is the
case still needs to be investigate. Alas I have no time to look in to
this any further at the moment.  Maybe you could write a small
c-program to access the driver via the same interface as erlang odbc
and see what SQLExecDirect returns for your particular query.
One potential problem I can see is if it returns SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO
as this has been used to indicate an error in the user input by
drivers in this particular situation. I no longer recall exactly what
the odbc standard says about this, but we have a comment in the code
stating this to be the case, and only SQL_SUCCESS is considered to
be correct. Maybe this could be a problem of different interpretations
of the standard. If you find anything out please let me know.
