No.

Are you referring to the [ODBC] Are multiple selects of
the same field allowed using CRecordset::GetFieldValue() ?
If you don't hate to compile the driver by yourself, please
remove or comment the following lines at near the end of
copy_and_convert_field in convert.c and try it.

        if (result == COPY_OK && stmt->current_col >= 0)
                opts->bindings[stmt->current_col].data_left = 0;

I hope the latest driver is the best one for anyone.

Unfortunately there's no consensus on it and seems 
hard to get any consensus in the near future. 
Probably we must have another place to do it,
if it is really needed.
