Have unixODBC 2.3.1 configured with FreeTDS to provide MS SQLSERVER 2000 
support via ODBC.

Connectivity and everything is fine except that we need a method to set 
quoted identifiers off.

We also use Microsoft sqlncli via unixODBC to provide MS SQLSERVER 
2005/2008/2012 support and this uses an odbc.ini setting of QuotedID = NO 
to do the job.

This setting does not work when driver is FreeTDS (also freetds.conf seems 

Is there a way to support QuotedID connection attribute using FreeTDS and 
unixODBC ?

Many thanks for any help,
