The following sections list and describe the deprecated features from the old Teradata ODBC driver not available in the new Teradata ODBC Driver.

Disable Dialog Box Popups

The old driver allowed the user to disable popup dialog boxes by using the configuration options QuietMode or RunInQuietMode. Popup dialog boxes are not present in the new driver, and these options are not available.

Integer Time

The old driver allowed the user to specify Integer Time in the DSN option DateTime Format or the configuration option DateTimeFormat. Integer Time mode has been removed from the new driver for compatibility reasons, and these options cannot be used to specify Integer Time in the new driver.

Bypass State Check Level

The old driver allowed the user to bypass the ODBC state check for open cursors by using the DSN option State Check Level or the configuration option StCheckLevel. These options are not available in the new driver.

Disable Prepare

The old driver allowed the user to disable the prepare step for SQLDirectExec statements by using the DSN option Disable Prepare For SQL or the configuration option SQLWithCommentsOrParenthesis. These options are not available in the new driver.

Application Catalog Database

The old driver allowed the user to include a specified database in table searches under specific circumstances by using the configuration option AppCatalogDB. This option invoked non-standard behavior, and is not available in the new driver.

Disable Asynchronous Operation

The old driver allowed the user to silently ignore attempts to enable asynchronous operation by using the configuration option DisableAsync. This option invoked non-standard behavior, and is not available in the new driver.

Disable Native Large Object Support

The old driver allowed the user to disable support for Native Large Object datatypes by using the DSN option Use Native Large Object Support or the configuration option UseNativeLOBSupport. These options are not available in the new driver.

Return Output Parameters as ResultSet

The old driver allowed the user to return INOUT and OUT parameters as a ResultSet rather than as parameters by using the configuration option OutputAsResultSet. The ODBC specification no longer has an option for returning these parameters as a ResultSet, and this option is not available in the new driver.

ClientKanjiFormat (UNIX/Linux only)

On UNIX and Linux systems, the old driver allowed the user to specify a character set format by using the configuration option ClientKanjiFormat. This option is not available in the new driver.

Redisplay Reconnect Wait

The old driver allowed the user to specify how long to display the ODBC continue/cancel reconnection prompt during a reconnection by using the Redisplay Reconnect Wait DSN option. This prompt is not displayed in the new driver, and this option is not available.
