IBM DB2 ODBC-driver for download

P: n/a
Hi,

Frontend: MS Access XP on Win XP
Backend AIX: DB2 ... (7.1)

Hi,

to be honest, concerning the db2 im a rather newbie, so sorry for unexact
question. I tried in beforehand to find some for me relevant information on
the IBM or MS side and on Google-groups, but i failed (maybe im just to
silly).

In the office there is Office XP and Win XP installed together with an
(older) ODBC-driver for IBM DB2 7.1 which i use to just link the tables into
Access.

On my Toshiba-laptop i installed for testing purposes the Personal Edition
of IBM DB2, a CD which i got from IBM on a fair (Version 8.2 beta). This one
obviously automatically installs a newer odbc-driver.

This driver behaves differently on dates as said in an article about Access
and dates and ODBC

So my question: Where to load the new ODBC-driver seperate from the PE ? I
dont want to install the whole system for just getting a new driver. Any
special things ive to look for ?

There's much difference between drivers in V7 and v8. You can downlad
the latest client software, which includes the ODBC driver from here:

You will probably need just runtime client.

Be careful though - because of incompatibilities between V7/V8 clients,
you may want to use the V7 runtime client (but be aware that DB2 UDB
V7.2 ends support as of 9/30/2004).
