php mssql

I have a connection to a ms sql server I would Like to have the same kinder setup that I use with mysql where I call the connection into a recordset and be able to access different columns using

$row_recordset1['column name ']

instead of a array

Not to put too fine a point on it, but...

The notation you show here is PHP array notation.  You may be surprised how easy it can be to move from your familiar MySQL to MSSQL.  For the most part, I've found that you can replace mysql_query() with mssql_query() and use mssql_fetch_assoc() to retrieve the records from the result resource.  Some notable differences...

There is no analog to mysql_real_escape_string().  I made my own mssql_real_escape_string() function because the idea of using unescaped data made me itch.

The LIMIT clause is different.  In MySQL you might write SELECT thing FROM tbl LIMIT 3 but in MSSQL, you write SELECT TOP(3) thing FROM tbl.

There are other differences, but nothing that was difficult to overcome, and the online documentation you can find with a Google search was always enough to get me going.  But with that said, if I were trying to write a high-performance web service, I would not have tried to do this myself -- I would have hired the MSSQL 3-banana man!

How do you connect to the mssql server? PDO?

What version of PHP do you have?  What OS/Webserver?  Which version of MS SQL server?  

Details are important here.  PHP 5.2 and below on Windows can use the php_mssql driver while PHP 5.3 and above can not.  PHP 5.3 and above must use sqlsrv driver for direct access.  With the correct SQL Native Client installed, you can also use ODBC to connect.  PDO driver is available in some variations also.

What code are you using right now?
you will have similar function to mssql.

sorry thanks for your post the connection to mssql is mssql_query with mssql_fetch_assoc($data))

I dont use PDO. the PHP version is 5.3.14

here is one of my connections
$data = mssql_query("
SELECT      sum(Transactions) + sum(Duplicates)
FROM [SQL01].[dbo].[KPIDay_T]
WHERE        (iDHClientID = 90) AND (UpdtdWhn BETWEEN CONVERT(DATETIME, '$date1', 102) AND CONVERT(DATETIME, '$date2', 102))");
$row = mssql_fetch_assoc($query);

Open in new window
