The "set rowcount" directive applies to physical connection. If for some reason the $dbh->do() command opens a new connection under the covers then it won't work.

Which DBD driver are you using?

    I'm running an Apache/Linux server using FreeTDS and dbi:Sybase (Thank you) connecting to a Win2K box with MSSQL 7.0. Took a little while to get this all talking.


      OK - the "set rowcount" should work, as long as DBD::Sybase doesn't feel that there are still results pending on a previous statement handle associated with the $dbh - in that case it goes and opens a new connection, which of course defeats the purpose here.
