But I'm really stuck, I am unable to connect using my app now.  I can connect ok using the Queryman application, using the same User ID and Password values, so I know the connection is possible and queries will run and return results from the Queryman application.

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-
