ODBC Compatibility Question II


please excuse my rather simple question, but since I have not found an
answer after a long search, I'll contact you.

My question is, if I can always use the latest ODBC driver with older
database server versions. For example, ODBC version 11 with DB Cluster 9.6?

No; servers older than 7.4 used a different network protocol.

But if your server is 7.4 or newer (i.e., is less then sixteen years old),
then you can use the latest ODBC driver (or any version since 7.4).
