Bill -- I'd suggest starting at www.perl.com

Excerpts from DBD::ODBC ReadMe follow:

- If the tests from t/09bind.t fail, that is an indication of lack of ODBC Level 2 functionality. This does not (necessarily) mean that your installation is broken. It does indicate that your ODBC driver does not support certain level 2 calls (see below).

- This version utilizes at least one "Level 2" ODBC call (SQLDescribeParam). This *will* affect compatibility with specific ODBC drivers. If the driver is not level 2 (or does not support the level 2 function(s) required), then full compatibility will not be available.

- DBD-ODBC currently uses SQLDescribeParam for binding parameters toqueries.

- You may (and probably will) have success using DBD-ODBC without binding parameters.

Teradata ODBC drivers currently provide full compliance at "Level 1" but only a few features from higher levels -- not SQLDescribeParam. For now, you must avoid the DBI "bind_param" function with Teradata. NCR is actively working on many improvements to client support (see earlier messages from Bob Hahn); I don't know if the mid-2000 TUF 6.0 release will address this specific issue.
