since php 5.3.5 odbc_execute failed
up to php 5.3.3 it works fine (with same conditions, same database and same odbc-drivers)

Resource id #15
faultCode0faultStringWarning:odbc_execute(): SQL error: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver does not support this function, SQL state IM001 in SQLDescribeParameter

We use 
postgresql 9.0.3, 
psqlODBC 08.03.0200-12.1,
UnixODBC 2.2.12-206.1

Test script:
$sql_prep = odbc_prepare($db, 'update testtab set testfield = ? where id = 1');
echo $sql_prep;
$rs = odbc_execute($sql_prep, array("dideldidum"));

I experienced this issue too (with 5.4.29), but the issue will occur with anything newer than 5.3.3.

The root problem's not actually caused by PHP, which threw me because it appeared to work perfectly fine in 5.3.3.

The issue being experienced here is because error handling was added to SQLDescribeParam() (; previously none existed, so it assumed all was fine, but in reality, it was still throwing this error. It was just ignored, and somehow managed to continue behaving relatively normally.

In my case, it's rightfully throwing this error because in fact FreeTDS does not support SQLDescribeParam().

Indeed, the behavior is not a bug in current versions of PHP, but
rather an old bug had been fixed, as explained by braydenm
