We had this problem and tracked it down to the differences between Access's
and Posgres's handling of uninitialised booleans.  The solution was to add
"set default false" on any booleans. Access does not set a default on
booleans in new rows it creates, but expects them to be not-null.

By the way, "write conflict" seems to be Access's message of last resort:
read it as meaning "something has gone wrong and I don't know what".

Which version of psqlodbc driver are you using ?
If it's older than 7.01.0003 please try the latest one.
