I don't see why that would not work. You should probably post your query, and your table def(s) here for the community to see.

Just to mention, if you defined your SQLDSN_FOO vars, you would have to restart IC to take effect. If you don't, it may read the text file into gdbm on subsequent read attempts depending if you supplied them or not... IIRC, but surely you restarted yes?
