in reply to 'use database' for sqlserver

The following works fine for me:

$ perl -le 'use DBI; my $h = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:DRIVER={Easysoft O +DBC-SQL Server};server=\\SQLEXPRESS;UID=xxx;PWD=yyy;databa +se=master;")'

and if I put an unknown database in it fails to login.

    This one works:
    my $connect_string = "dbi:ODBC:DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER={$server};UI +D=$username;PWD=$password;DATABASE=$db;"; $dbh = DBI->connect($connect_string);
    Thanks to all.
