Hello,

I use ODBC to access a postgis database from SAS (they provide database
interfaces to Oracle and ODBC, not to postgresql) and from R (using the
RODBC package which satisfactorily replaces the now defunct RDBI package).
It also provides connectivity to MS Access, which some colleagues use.
Cheers,
