Well, if you check last week's archives, you'll notice a very similar  
question came up. We suggest using the our mxODBC ZopeDA with an  
ExternalMethod for this kind of thing as it gives you a lot more control  
and allows you to work outside the restrictions on ZSQL which, good as it  
is, isn't suitable for this.
