Thanks for the clarification Crispin!
I have been using the format - ODBC:myconnectionname
I bet that will make a difference.

I have tried this DLL in AutoCAD Map 2009 SP1 and also in our alternative
MapRelate solution.
Success on both camps - especially pleased with this build including xerces
support means that I can read GML into AutoCAD now!  Thanks Trian.

The sample GeoDatabase I am using came from the interweb somewhere and to
utilise the personal geodatabase I first created a System-ODBC connection to
the MDB file in the Windows ODBC administrator - in my case I called my
sample ODBC connection 'pgeo_somerset'.

Then in Map I did a 'Add OGR Connection' and in the box for datasource put
this exact format (from the OGR documentation) - ie the "PGeo:" prefix and
then the ODBC connection name:

I hope this helps.
