Which ODBC driver are you using? You mentioned the default driver so I
assume the "SQL Server" one. Try installing the "SQL Server Native Client
10.0" driver and seeing if that fixes your problem. There is information on
the driver and a link to the download page on a lesson in a manual on my
company website:
