I have a SQL 7 database.

VB4 applications are updating some tables using a ODBC DSN with the setting "Translation - Convert OEM to ANSI characters" set.

What is the equivalent using a 32-bits DSN? I do not find any setting equivalent.

Hi Eric,

I think it is the "AutoTranslate=Yes" parameter in the extended properties.

Eric, how about OEMToAnsi=yes

This KB article might provide some clues or at least a starting point.
