DRIVER=Firebird/InterBase(r) driver;UID=SYSDBA;PWD=masterkey;

DIALECT=1 - Parser processes as it did in InterBase V5.

DIALECT=2 - Transitional flagger. InterBaseV6, and Firebird flags ambiguous SQL constructs and issues an error or warning message.

DIALECT=3 - Parser processes anything delimited by single quotes as string constants and any thing delimited by double quotes as SQL delimited identifiers.
