How to obtain MS SQL Server ODBC  drivers for an HPUNIX system?

Greetings:

I have code which runs on a Windows NT system and establishes a connection to an SQL server database.  Once the connection is made, data is parsed from a file and transfered to the database using the connection handle.

Now I would like to take this same code and run it on an HPUNIX system so that data can be transfered to the SQL database on the NT system.  However, I realize this code will not compile unless the necessary drivers are in place.  Thus, I'm wondering how to obtain such drivers.  Is it possible that Microsoft's data access components are sufficient.  If not what do I need keeping in mind that I do NOT want third party software.  That option is very costly and probably not necessary.
