Please don't. It seems true that Microsoft has enabled a mode for
SQL Server, but the main problem was Access. And Access 95/97 has
a huge installed base of users that would not be able to use its
automated query tools with PostgreSQL. If the interfaces' list is
any indication, most people use a architecture like:
PostgreSQL Server <--------- Access Front-End
I hate kludges. But I'd prefer compatibility with Microsoft
