Thanks to everyone who replied.

To answer Hiroshi Inoue:
I am running the version of pgsqlodbc which I downloaded just
last week.

To answer Peter Wilkinson:
The table that I can't update via Access has no boolean fields in it.  But
I'll try ensuring that all fields have a default.

To answer Jean-Michel POURE: I have MDAC 2.6 which I downloaded last week
when installing pgAdmin.  The Jet upgrade you pointed me to was for
Jet 4.0 SP 3.  I ran this upgrade but it doesn't seem to change the
behavior.  And thanks for the FAQ tip.
