Per bug 11748340 SQLDescribeParam does not work and won't be fixed in MySQL ODBC, but docs indicate that it is available:


How to repeat:
Refresh web browser and see that documentation still indicates SQLDescribeParam works.  

Suggested fix:
Update docs to indicate that SQLDescribeParam always returns same value and can not be used to get column type or size.

Corrected the manual to say that the function is not supported by C/ODBC. Also indicated in ts description: "Not supported by Connector/ODBC—the returned results should not be trusted." 

Changes will be visible in the next build of the manual.
