Okay, so I hear that ODBC is Unidirectional. What are the advantages and disadvantages of such a thing?
Thanks in Advance for your help.

okay, well, being my crazy self I seem to have answered my own question here but want to put it out there for someone to read over, perhaps.
A unidirectional driver will ditch the rows of information after they are read while a bi-directional driver would keep the rows of info contained within the RS for the purposes of navigating back.
So performance vs. ease of use?
