An update to this post..The Openlink drivers work with pretty much any database at the moment, except MS SQL Server. It seems their code has a
bug in it, of which they are aware, and it will be fixed in their next release, which is due out within (HOPEFULLY) the next month. The drivers
for Oracle work quite well, and the only problem that has been noted, is that you need to use a SQLDRIVERCONNECT to connect to the database, instead
of SQLCONNECT. This has been reported to Openlink, and will be addressed in the next release.
UPDATE (13 NOV 00)
: The new drivers are out and unfortunately, the same bug is still there.
