unixODBC and the year 2000 and beyond

Because of the design of ODBC there are no direct references to Date's or Times other that in SQL_DATE/SQL_TIME/SQL_TIMESTAMP structures. Any year information within these are stored to four digits of precision including century.

As none of the above information is generated by the code within unixODBC but by either the Application or the DBMS behind the driver, the unixODBC team are confidant that within the confines of the unixODBC code, and not including supporting operating system supplied code, there are no issues relating to the year 2000.
