Indeed - SQLASCII often works 'by accident', however there is no guarantee. You must use an encoding that properly supports your data. Unicode should work for most.

Not sure why your getting that.
Is the database Unicode?
When I was in SQLASCII mine read as ?
The older driver 7.4 reas SQLASCII ok and presented French characters ok,
but newer version did not.
When I converted to a Unicode database I could read the French characters ok
with the new driver.

By the way been up Since Monday no odbc errors yet :)

I  have the same problem and reported a bug.
It seems, that Unicode is readed unencoded (one byte per character)
