ODBC blues

P: n/a
Just been checking out odbc. The notion of simply being able to upload
an Access file seemed cool, but writing the queries is far from
straightforward. Firstly there is the reserved word problem. It
appears you can't have a field name called 'name'. Oh...that one kept
me busy for a while.

Then there is odbc_num_rows(). Returns the number of rows right? Nope,
returns -1 for a select query.

And finally, no LIMIT so you have to run a nested select statement to
get a range of results.

All of which made something very simple, rather complicated.

So, to my question. Are there any other quirks I should know about?
