Can you please create a log and attach it to this bug report.

To create a log, you need to start the application that uses the MonetDB ODBC driver with an extra environment variable. Probably the easiest way to do that is to start a cmd window (Start -> Run... -> cmd.exe) and in that window type

set ODBCDEBUG=C:....\odbc.log

and then start your application from this window.
The bit after the = should be the absolute pathname of a file you can write to. After the application is done it should contain a log of the complete interaction with the driver. Before attaching the file, please make sure it doesn't contain any sensitive information.

Looks like this is due to an incorrect implementation of the (deprecated) SQLParamOptions function.

Thanks for your action on this issue.

Can you provide a precompiled Version of the corrected ODBC.dll for
32bit/64bit Windows 7-Plattform. I'd like to test it in my environment and give you a feedback.
