Thanks Vitaly.  Could you please explain the need for "c:= DBMS_HS_PASSTHROUGH.EXECUTE_IMMEDIATE at hsodbc('use tempdb');"...  We did get it working without this by using version 0.63 and turning on the development flag.

Hello Gregg. 
Try to use quoted identifiers ("table_name" instead table_name) and set valid DB with DBMS_HS_PASSTHROUGH.EXECUTE_IMMEDIATE before query:

DECLARE 
   c   INTEGER; 
   v   varchar2(30);
begin
 c:= DBMS_HS_PASSTHROUGH.EXECUTE_IMMEDIATE at hsodbc('use tempdb');
 select foo into v  from "table_name"@hsodbc ;
end; 

Unfortunately, generic heterogeneous connectivity service does not support distributed transactions :(.

Sincerely yours.

We are trying to connect our Solaris 8 Oracle 9i database to FreeTDS through unixODBC, and are able to connect to SQLServer2000.  However, all our queries through SQLPlus error out with "table or view does not exist.  Both tsql and isql queries run fine, so we are baffled.

Here is our configuration string...  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

locale is "C"
locale charset is "646"
Compile-time settings (established with the "configure" script):
                           Version: freetds v0.62.3
    MS db-lib source compatibility: no
       Sybase binary compatibility: unknown
                     Thread safety: no
                     iconv library: yes
                       TDS version: 7.0
                             iODBC: no
                          unixodbc: yes

Thanks,
