[postgis-users] Postgis extension

Which system are you connecting from?  Sounds like whatever system you are
using is designed to work with spatial tables. Like as I recall I think
ArcMap uses PostgreSQL ODBC driver.


There isn't any reason otherwise why you should be having issue connecting
to a non-spatial table.  I connect via SQL Server and MS Access all the time
even when I have spatial tables in my database.  There isn't even any reason
why a system would check geometry_columns unless it's designed to work with
spatial data.


Hope that helps,

I am trying to access the Postgres DB using ODBC driver. I have Postgis
extension installed on my DB and when trying to query the non-spatial tables
from the tool, I keep getting the error "no records returned from
GEOMETRY_COLUMNS for this table". Is there any environment variable that
would let the ODBC know that its a non spatial table and avoid looking into
