ODBC has been a mess for a long time. It should be warned about rather 
than teaching it.

Yes, the same effort invested in specific database drivers would 
certainly be more effective.

After all, we have experts here who work with Oracle and Sybase. If they 
use Gambas with a proprietary database, they can also go to the trouble 
of developing the driver for it themselves and make it public available 
as OSS under the GPL license.

I believe that any energy spent on ODBC would be better spent elsewhere.

But using ODBC as a driver to talk to Sqlite with Gambas is really 
completely pointless, since a corresponding driver for Sqlite already 

Alles Gute
