Hi Phil,

In one of the technotes at the download section of ODB Tiger Logic says the following:

General Rule:
New servers will work with older clients, but new clients will not work with older servers.
For Studio 4.03 this means version 1.3 or higher.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to go on site at this time, and remote access isn't possible.

Hence why I tried it locally, thought I'd corrected the problem, asked them to try it, and it did not improve.

Most of my work involves SQL datasets, so I'm not so familiar with ODB.

Bob, your suggestion of using the latest ODB...
I take it, that it will still work with Omnis 4.03?

Clearly there should be some improvements from 1.41 to 1.54, you'd think?
