You are trying to use a package built for R 2.0.0 under R < 2.0.0.

How you managed to do that we have no idea, as RODBC is not available on 
http://www.microsoft.com/data/odbc!  Almost certainly you got it from the 
wrong place, from CRAN/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/, so please do read
the rw-FAQ and get the correct version.

The posting guide asks you to give your R platform and version, which you 
have (again) not done.
