insert into microsoft sql database

I'm having problems inserting into a remote database.  

my code:

use Win32::ODBC;

my $DSN = "DSN=mydsn;UID=myid;PWD=password;";
my $connection = new Win32::ODBC($DSN);
$SQL = "INSERT INTO tblUploadLog \(ID\, CreateDateTime\, Status\) VALUES \(\'101\', \'1\/1\/2005\', \'Problem\')";

Not sure what's wrong.  

I ran this from a command prompt and there aren't any error messages.

I ran the same sql statement on the remote database manually with enterprise manager and it works.

if( $connection>Sql($SQL) ){
    print "SQL failed.\n";
    print "Error: " . $connection->Error() . "\n";
    $connection->Close();
    exit;
}

->  Same result with this code.  None of the connection error messages came up when i ran it through command prompt.
