Navigate to the "Message" Tab & enable the "Detail Tracing (Slow)" option.

2) Switch to the "Advanced" tab & Select "Add XML to Detail Trace Log"

3) Apply the changes. Close all the applications. ( If any of the application is already connected, QODBC will not start logging ) Connect again.

Run a Test Query
