Teradata ODBC paramter insert using SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE not working. Topic by expressor 16 Apr 2007

Has anyone had success using the SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE parameter with SQLSetStmtAttr for bulk inserts? When ever I set this parameter to lets say 32 if I then proceed to do a SQLGetStmtAttr(statement, SQL_ATTR_PARAMSET_SIZE, ...), the return value is still one.I have followed the instructions in the “ODBC Driver for Teradata Users Guide” in the “Using Parameter Arrays” section. This code works with all of the other major RDBMS vendors.The ODBC version being used is on Windows 32 (2000 sp4) which should work. I have tried all version of the ODBC driver 03.05 and higher and none seem to work.Thanks-

Can I switch between LDAP and Standard Authentication? Topic by M..S 23 Mar 2012 ldap, authentication

I have a Teradata user called FREDBLOGGS. 

He has an account on Teradata (UserID FREDBLOGGS / password TERADATA). 

He also has an entry in LDAP (UserID FREDBLOGGS / password LDAP).

If I set up my Teradata server to authenticate via LDAP, can this be overridden by the authentication mechanism chosen by Fred when he logs in?

Can I get by temporarily with ODBC driver 12.0 accessing Database V13.10? Topic by dennisfortier 06 Mar 2012

We are upgrading our database from V12 to V13.10.  In preparation for our upgrade, we have upgraded our TTU components to 13.10.  We have also installed Viewpoint to replace Teradata Manager, TDWM, ect.

It looks like our effort to upgrade desktop ODBC drivers from 12 to 13.10 across our enterprise will not be complete when the database is upgraded to V13.10.
