Hi there,

I am using  (version 06.30.0242) of your PostgreSQL ODBC driver to work with 
MS-Access as a nice to look interface to my PostgreSQL 6.3 DB.

Some problems occur when I try to use Access-Form to update imbedded tables.

What happens: I add some external tables via ODBC, and Access asks for the 
fields that make up a unique qualifier for each table. In my app it is an 
integer as the record number.

When I try to change some entries, I have a crash of Access. It tries to update 

UPDATE transferstellen SET telefon='02461/6009 1017',telefax='02461/6009 1090' 
WHERE kennummer = 2 AND teil = 'A' AND hochschule = 'Fachhochschule Aachen' AND
organisation = 'Technlogie- und Wissenstransfer' AND organisation2 = '' AND
gebaeude = '' AND strasse = 'Kalverbenden 6' AND plz = '52066' AND ort =
'Aachen' AND bundesland = 'NRW' AND telefon = '0241/6009 1017' AND telefax =
'0241/6009 1090' AND email = 'wagner(at)fh-aachen(dot)de' AND www =
'' AND lastchange =

Why don't you use the unique field (kennummer for me), Access claims to  know 
about. Is is my mistake to work like this? What can I do?
