Any ideas on how to connect to a SQL server database? I don't want to follow the ODBC route. I would like the users to think they are still in Notes while accessing SQL data. I need connector classes for back-end script?

In native client or in web?

If in LotusClient: do you have the ODBC drivers on server (do you use LS:DO )?
Are you familar with the NotesAgent.RunOnServer(ParamDocID) method?

This is in both instances (client and on web). I'm actually looking for some native I/F and not ODBC. Do you know if such an interfase exists?

Please explain wath is the database you want to talk to in SQL native.

(for me this is still strange. SQL is only the protocol. This sounds to me like: I want to use HTTP to a server but without a browser... ;-))

Nope, the db is Microsoft SQL database running on NT. Does this answer your question? I need to know if there in an I/F other than ODBC between Notes and this db.

OK, now I understand why you ask for "SQL" without SQL ;-)

but, sorry, I have to look for native MicrosoftSQL interfaces to Notes (and do not beleave to find any).

Again is the question why do you not like to use ODBC?

ODBC is my last option as I have to do large bulk transfers of data. Looks like this is my only option though.

Not your only option.  Many middleware tools such as Replic-Action, Notrix, and LEI will allow you to perform realtime queries against a back-end SQL database.  However, when it comes down to it, they are just providing a wrapper for ODBC drivers so that you don't have to code all of the looping, error handling, etc. that is associated with proper use of LS:DO and ODBC.
