Carlos, sorry, I thought you was on Windows, not on Linux.

I thought this because it is clearly explained in the ODBC-DA that this
only works on Windows, and I read very fast your message, sorry.

Take a look also to sf.net/projects/odbcsock and the Zope XMLKit.

For dbtcp, I have started to do a database adapter for Zope, but I have no
time, and If you want to access MS SQL server rather than Access, the
solutions said by Dieter are much better.
