I have used ODBC drivers for Progress from both Intersolv and Openlink.  Neither is perfect, however, currently I prefer the Openlink drivers.  They seem much faster and easier to configure.
Also, Openlink appears much more interested in their Progress drivers than Intersolv.

I have VB 6.0 enterprise.  The "persistent" ADO connection used with the Openlink driver is pretty cool, check it out.
