Im running iSeries Access for Windows V5R3. My current iSeries ODBC for Windows driver is v10. I would like to upgrade it to v11. Does anyone know how to do this without updating iSeries Access for Windows client on my pc? I need to leave it at V5R3.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Why not upgrade the PC’s to V5R4 ? It works with a server at V5R3. Since the ODBC is part of iSeries Access anyway, wouldn’t that be upgrading the clinet anyway ?

    Easiest way is probably to install V5R4 on your server and start upgrading your clients. It's hard to image any reasons for a "need to leave [the PC] at V5R3" except for licensing issues. And it's hard to come up with good reasons for needing the ODBC client at V11 when DB2 on the server will remain at V5R3. Are there v11 capabilities that you expect to achieve? Perhaps there are alternative ways to get them if you can describe them. Tom
