I need to access a database running in MS SQL Server 7.0 (NT4.0) from a perl script in a UNIX (BSDI4.1) computer. I have in the past succesfully installed DBI/DBD drivers for MySQL and used them with no problems, because of the many tutorials I found on the Internet on how to do this, but I am completely at a loss with what is needed to interface to an MS SQL Server :(
Please help! when it comes to db access I am completely dense (but I learn fast!), so I would appreciate a very detailed description on what modules I need to install and how to connect and access the data programmatically (examples?). Do I need DBD:ODBC? DBI::? or what?
Thanx in advance!
