I'm on PG 7.0.2 and using the ODBC driver I grabbed from the "main ODBC
site" back in July.  I've got lots of (maybe too many ;) backups of our

Again, this happened a while ago.  I'm sure the query would have worked
from psql.. there's nothing strange about it.  I have to enable logging in
the PG ODBC driver to get a psqlodbc_????.log, right?  Will this log
errors like this one?
