What do you want to know?

The builtin version of odbc32.dll basically acts as a connection to any 
underlying unix ODBC (e.g. unixODBC or iODBC; I only have experience of 
unixODBC).  Therefore it basically handles just about anything that the 
underlying ODBC does.  We use it against IBM DB2 databases, and I think we 
have succeeded (sort of, in the past) against Oracle databases.  The problem 
against MS-SQL and other databases is finding a unixODBC driver.

The other possibility is to use a native Microsoft odbc32.dll and its drivers 
(if that is legal) and depend upon Wine handling the low-level network stuff 
etc.  I don't personally have any experience of that.
