I'm not so sure, but I think it is called 'Postgresql' as I remember 
seeing this option somewhere in the ODBC dialogs.
There were no other options to choose from.

The servers' log file shows me "select pg_client_encoding()" and 
directly after "set client_encoding to 'UTF8'", hence I assume it is a 
Unicode version. I'm currently not at the Windows machine, but I could 
send logfile snippets later, if necessary.

Sound good. Does your server also run on Windows (cygwin)?

Perhaps I give 7.4. a try on cygwin, that's easier than switching to a 
newer Access version.

Thanks and best regards,
