these three lines are i used:
$dsn =odbc_connect($mssqlDatasource, $mssqlUser, $mssqlPass, SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC);
$result=odbc_exec($dsn,"SELECT Name FROM myTable;");
$num= mssql_num_rows($result);

thank you so much!

when using odbc_connect, you "obviously" cannot use mssql_num_rows....
instead, guess what: odbc_num_rows():

as I said, I do use mssql_xxxxx  functions on both sql 2000 AND sql 2005, so if you fail to use them, you probably only need to connect correctly, ie:

mssql_connection("servername,port","username", "password");

the ",port" part is the "trick" to get it working with sql 2005...

you will have to get the right port, of course.
also, what is the OS you run php on?
