"should be the dialect for every new database" !!!!
not so Martijn
surely there needs to be a data requirement for int64 and date only types
otherwise dialect 1 is just dandy
and may continue to be so until dialect 1 is totally discarded.
I haven't tested this but if you do not use int64 and date only types, you
may still be able to use it with dialect 3.

PS there is probably a license issue with regard to the old Intersolv
driver - it came with version 5 onwards as a licensed database. I have read,
however, that if you are licensed for 5.6 then there seems to be no
restrictions to having it connect to 6 also, but I'm sure it would be
against the license to distribute it.

As far as I know - it doesn't support Dialect 3 ... which, I think, should
be the standard dialect for every new database you are creating.
I believe it doesn't do "delimited identifiers" and no INT64 like

I don't know anything about the driver and haven't mentioned it with
regards to IB 4...
