ODBCcmpt allows you to enable or disable the 6.5 or 7.0 ODBC compatibility option, using the following syntax:

ODBCcmpt filename 

The filename is the name of an application's executable file for which you want to set the compatibility level. This option permits the SQL Server ODBC driver (Version 3.7) to be compatible with previous drivers. You might need to enable this option when running an application that SQL Server 2000 should treat as a 6.5-level or 7.0-level application. This allows backward compatibility for applications using either the ODBC 2.x or ODBC 3.x API.

The ODBCCMPT.EXE file is located, by default, with the SQL Server tools in Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\.
