Hi Miguel
Unfortunately the installer you supplied is broken. I get some errors
Internal error 25001
Then when I try to run SQL Explorer, I get:

DbX.DbI was not found or identified.  It is needed to explore databases

Regards, Dave.

			I'm testing the Ansi version of the
psqlodbc-08.01.0100 and I have found a few isues.
			If you open a table with the BDE SQL explorer,
now it shows all the text fields (char, varchar and text), but for the
TEXT type it show the contents as MEMO. This behavior could be changed
in prior versions  unchecking the "Text as LongVarChar" option and
checking the "Longest" option in the "Unknown Sizes" section.
			Now, it can be fixed only changing the "Max
LongVarchar" edit to 254. It looks like the driver it is not using the
"longest" option in the configuration.

		No - longest doesn't work anymore because there is no
sensible way to figure it out with the libpq driver architecture. It was
only ever there to support pre-6.4 servers that couldn't report the
defined column width (see the config.htm doc for details).
		That aside, shouldn't TEXT equate to MEMO anyway?

	Sure yes, but before (version 7.x) TEXT equate to VARCHAR if the
longest size is under 255 characters, and this change the behavior of
some Delphi components, such as TDataGrid, etc. Anyway, it could be
solved easily with a few lines of code.

			If you open the database schema with the sql
explorer it does not show all the tables, and each table that it shows
appears 6 times. It is easy to reproduce, because it happens with all
the system tables.

		Please try 08.01.0101. 

	Now it shows each system table about four times, and each user
table about three times. Still not showing all the tables in the
