Timestamp problem after upgrade DB2 ODBC Client from 7.x to 8.x

After upgrade ODBC Client from version 7.2 to 8.1 (FixPack 10) a have
problem with tables where primary key is set to timestamp filed.

In version 7.2 TIMESTAMP was mapped in MS Access as CHAR(26). Everything
worked OK.

In 8.1 (FP10) TIMESTAMP is mapped as DATE/TIME. I can't see tables with
timestamp primary key. In every field I see "#deleted".

I tried to setup patch2=24 and patch1=131072 but it doesn't work.

Have you got any experiance with that problem?
How to solve it?
Is it a DB2 Client bug?

Best Regards

This is -if you like to call it that way - an access bug, but actually
working as designed.
If you trace it, you will see that for some queries it actually
executes more than one database call.
so, if data changes between these calls, it will show it as #deleted.

At least that is what we found.

execute it as a native query and you should be fine.

Those patch settings usually helped, but I do not fully remember which
we did set, I think patch1=4 or 8 or so.

patch1=131072 and patch2=24 should be applied when still mapping to
char() in access (from what I can see)

I know it's Access problem, but 7.2 Client works for me OK (map
I tried different configurations CLI parameters but id doesn't work..

Why they change in Client 8.2 logic for TIMESTAMP field?
Is there a way to change Client 8.2 to map TIMSTAMP as CHAR in MS Access?

I made some tests on Client 7.2 and 8.2.
The result is that Client 8.2 doesn't work switch Patch1=131072
(describe time stamps as a CHAR(26))

I think it's a ODBC Client 8.x bug!
