Out of interest, can you send a log of what happens with DataDirect and 
unixODBC I am interested to see what the difference could be. I don't 
know (but others may) if the freeTDS driver supports arrays of parameters.

How are you setting the size of the parameter array. via the statement 
attr SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE, or the descriptor header value 

What platform is it on BTW.

If the unixODBC DM detects a ODBC 2 driver, it will map a 
doesn't go near SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE.
