I already told you before. ODBC is very weak API for real database abstraction. To make it worse, PHP ODBC API is buggy and not as complete as it could be. As the maintainer of PHP ODBC support, if you are willing to do anything about it, I can help you to pin point the problems that need to be addressed. Otherwise it is quite pointless to even consider using ODBC in PHP unless it is your really alternative.
