I have used the ODBC capability in Data Base Access Kit for many years. 
With the issuance of Mathematica V5.2,
many of the capabilities of the kit  are not supported because of the 
new Data Base Link add on in V5.2.. The new functionality  is
based on JDBC.
The key to success is to make sure you have the current ODBC driver from 
SAS. Without it nothing works.
Defining "bumping into problems", will be helpfull.
