You should not need a rowversioning function on your PostgreSQL server.
It is a setting in the ODBC driver. If you are using a DSN, when
configuring your PostgreSQL data source, in the PostgreSQL ODBC Data
Source applet window, use the datasource button, then Page
2, and click in the checkbox for row versioning.
If you are using a DSN-less connection, for the Connection String
include the RowVersioning parameter (=1).
Access/OCBC wants to know if some other users has updated the record
since you started viewing it -- it may query every field to see if they
matched the state when you started to view.
The automatically assigned row version number will show up as xmin in
any linked tables.
But primarily it wants to know if it has the correct record, and will
query each field to see if it matches the last known state,.... unless
it has an identifiable primary key.
Good primary keys, and row versioning solve many of problems.
Give every table a good primary key (a key with no floats, no text/memo
fields, no LOB/BLOB fields), even if the key is an otherwise unused
serial (auto-number). Re-link fields if necessary. Access should have no
problem determining the update state of records. If it does use the ODBC
Administrator to turn on lo turn on tracing and capture a log file of
The PostgreSQL documentation talks about how to set the resolution of
your timestamp fields.
