 ODBC and GRASS for Windows

 Have posted some weeks ago on a problem with the ODBC driver in the user
 but got no answer until now. I am working on a master thesis and would
 to use GRASS as the core of a solution with FOSGIS, but there seem to be
 problems with the ODBC driver in GRASS for Windows. Beeing not a
 I am not really sure about this and would like to consult the developers
 GRASS for a suggestion how to proceed. Please correct me, if my point of
 view should be wrong !

 My former post in the user list is this

 Is there any chance to solve the problem with reading ODBC data bases
 (particularly MS Access) in the near future? Havn't opened a ticket yet.

 Thanks a lot for any feedback,
 regards, Christine

 attached a simple test access database (testinput.mdb - zipped) - simple
 x,y-point-data - for the nc-sample dataset.

 tested here both with WinGRASS-6.4.3svn-r51149-195-Setup.exe and

 the v.in.db-wxgui freezes if database (i.e. C:\wd\access\testinput.mdb) is
 entered in the gui

 in the wxgui-commandline

 v.in.db driver=odbc database="C:\wd\access\testinput.mdb" table=grassinput
 key=ID x=xcoor y=ycoor output=mdbvector

 a error message pops up that odbc.exe isn't working.
