Sounds like it is time to consider a more robust software tool to 
automate this for you and replace ODBC inefficiencies.  I have used 
DataMirror Corporations "TRANSFORMATION SERVER" quite effectively 
moving data from the AS/400 to an NT/SQL server with right now 
results.  If you need additional information, please give me a call.
