Ages since I touched ODBC, but I think SQLPrepare doesn't actually
talk to the database. SQLExecute is the one that uses a DB connection
to run an SQL query.

You shouldn't be checking for 0 or -1, but for SQL_SUCCEEDED or not.

If your DB died before your ODBC program started, you SQLConnect will
fail, and if it died during your program's execution, your SQLExecute
will fail.
