Thanks all for the replies, I seemed to have figured out why this was empty... they gave
me the wrong data to load into the test database and queries into it found no matches... I
assumed that would be the problem and they are sending new data... however, I am going to
try and get the debug log working if possible as it sounds pretty useful, so thanks again.

Subject: RE: How can I see the query from a remote session against my server
The Windows ODBC connector does have a logging function. It's in the
"Details", on the "Debug" tab.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out where it puts the log file
even after doing a full scan of my hard drive. I searched for myodbc.*, and
didn't find anything that looked like a log file.
Either the feature doesn't work, or I'm blind.
