Is there any simple way to connect to a sql server running on windows from a linux m/c using the perl DBI module??? Do i need to download obbc drivers? Any help appreciated..........Also FYI, I am using windows authentication to login to the sql server (in which I created the database). So what user name and password should I use in my connection string? I want to insert values from a csv (in the linux m/c) into the database tables in the sql server.
