This posting has caused some discussion amongst some of us who are trying to
use DB2 in Native mode (i.e. using Unified ODBC) as the IBM driver manager
appears not to support this parameter. ( An odbc connect with the specified
parameter returns [IBM][CLI Driver] CLI0150E Driver not capable.

Could the author or anyone else who knows, please clarify this posting if
they are using unified odbc or perhaps a third party ODBC driver.
