Hi Kathy,

            psqlodbc-08.00.0102 is the official ODBC driver of the
PostgreSQL community. This driver is also partially 3.x compliant
whereas the driver provided by unixODBC is ODBC 2 compliant. Also
psqlodbc-08.00.0102 has lot of bug fixes gone into it.

 

 I believe the ODBC driver by unixODBC is little bit old.

 

I would suggest you to go and have your hands on libpq enabled ODBC
driver.

 

 

Regards,

Siva Kumar.K

Subject: [ODBC] Using Which Driver [correct]

 

Dear all,

 

I had installed Postgresql 8.0.3 as database server under Redhat Linux
9.0.

 

Also, I had installed unixODBC 2.2.11 and psqlodbc.so (generated from
psqlodbc-08.00.0102.tar.gz) under Redhat Linux 9.0 as client.

 

When I want to make ODBC connection to the database, I don't know which
driver should be used.

 

unixODBC 2.2.11 provides

 

    libodbcpsql.so.2.0.0

    libodbcpsqlS.so.1.0.0

 

From psqlodbc-08.00.0102.tar.gz, I installed

 

    psqlodbc.so

 

Please provide me more information on the difference of these 2 driver.
And, from psqlodbc-08.00.0102.tar.gz, I did not find psqlodbcS.so while
unixODBC provides it.

 

I know that libodbcpsqlS.so is the Setup library for Postgresql. Am I
right? And, why psqlodbc-08.00.0102.tar.gz does not provide this
library?

 

Thank for your kindly help!

 

Kathy
