What for? ODBC is unsupported for at least 5 years now. No more development, not sure they even LOOK at it anymore.

IOt was surpassed by OleDb a LONG time ago.

So why did they include System.Data.Odbc in the 1.1 Framework?



AnkhSVN - A Visual Studio .NET Addin for the Subversion version control system.

Because it costed them nearly nothing to do so, and there are a ton of ignorant developers out there that STILL dont upgrade their applications or drivers.

Besides, when you use System.Data.Odbc, you are not using ODBC via interop directlry - code with some intlligence, and you can replace this to OleDb faster than you can say "I am a bab programmer".

Again: the reason for this namespace are bad database systems that have no decent new drivers
