Sorry, I seem to have been suffering from fat fingers when typing the
reply. I can't get it to work without the quotes i.e.

Variable  SQLDSN  dbi:Pg:dbname=standard;host=my.postgres.server;port=5432;

I have also tried it without the port:

Variable  SQLDSN  dbi:Pg:dbname=standard;host=my.postgres.server;

Should either of these DSN's work?
