OK, so if I read you correctly that's the version of the spec that the low-level
drivers tell the ODBC DLLs they're prepared to implement.

OK, I think I've got an issue here relating to the BDE and the ANSI driver :-(

Running the failing program with the 8.01.0200 drivers and the 3.50.33.8 ODBC
DLLs memory usage explodes when it tries to execute the initial query, which is
basically there to establish communications with the tables. At present I think
that the problem is hidden somewhere inside the BDE but I'll see if I can
progress this further later.

Are there any connect settings that I need to know about that might be relevant,
or any other issues that anybody can recollect relating to the BDE?
