What Does Enable Microsoft Jet Engine Options Do?

The Jet Engine is synonymous with Microsoft tools such as Access, Excel (http://www.microsoft.com/office) or when developing with DAO (Data Access Objects). If your application falls into any of those categories, it is recommended that +jetfix is selected.

This option will map Microsoft Jet data types to compatible SQL Types ready for ODBC and data access. For example, the MSAccess Data Type `Money` will be converted to Float or Decimal. This is because not all databases support this type.
