Thanks a lot Nick for this information. It really solved all my troubles. I appreciate. :)

Just one more question. The same test is getting passed with datadirect DM. Is it possible that the way datadirect looks at the things are bit different than how unixODBC does? Sorry if I am asking a basic question but this is what I have observed.

Just checked the statement state transition docs.

A SQLDescribeParam in S4 (Executed) will return a HY010, so its doing what it should, you need to call the describe before the execute (S2 or S3)
