in reply to Help needed for Win32::ODBC

$DSN is incorrect.
Try with my $DSN = "DSN=IBUeMBA_DSN;UID=sa;PWD=xxxx;";
This outside link can also help you out when dealing with "DSN"s in general.

    Oh my! I simply missed that, thanks a lot for figuring out :)
      You may want to do a DSN less connection instead of relying on a preconfigured DSN. This allows you to move and run this script to any machine with the DB Client.
      use warnings; use strict; use Win32::ODBC; my $DSN = "driver={SQL Server};server=myservername;database=mydb;uid=s +a;pwd=xxxx"; if (!(my $input = new Win32::ODBC($DSN))){ print "Failure opening connection. \n\n"; exit(); }else{ print "Success (connection #", $input->Connection(), ")\n\n"; }
