peacemaker1820, I had to include the IP address, Port number, and the domain\server in order to get the MS SQL to work.

Check to make sure that you have current modules as well...
PPM>install DBI PPM>install DBD-ODBC

Here is some sample code to show you what works for my environment (W2K) but it should be similar (if not identical.)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use DBI; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; # Set up variables for the connection my $server_name = 'domain\server'; my $server_ip = ''; my $database_name = 'Tim'; my $database_user = 'Taylor'; my $database_pass = 'toolman'; my $DSN = 'driver={SQL Server};server=$server_name;tcpip=$server_ip;da +tabase=$database_name;uid=$database_user;pwd=$database_pass;'; my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:$DSN") || die "Couldn't open database +: $DBI::errstr\n"; # Prepare the SQL query for execution my $SQL1 = $dbh->prepare(<<End_SQL) || die "Couldn't prepare statement +: $DBI::errstr\n"; select * FROM Test_Table End_SQL print '<table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" +bgcolor="#ffffff" summary=""><tr><td align="center">'; print '<table border="1" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#fff +fff" summary="">'; # Execute the query $SQL1->execute() || die "Couldn't execute statement: $DBI::errstr\n"; # Fetch each row and print it while ( my ($field1,$field2,$field3,$field4,$field5) = $SQL1->fetchrow +_array() ) { print "<tr><td>$field1</td><td>$field2</td><td>$field3</td><td>$f +ield4</td><td>$field5</td></tr>"; } print "</table></td></tr></table>"; # Disconnect from the database $dbh->disconnect();

Also, make sure that you use:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict;
Use the search at the top for additional help on those and other topics (it's been discussed numerous times.) Also see the node: How to RTFM it's a really good insite to finding Perl help.

- Mission Updated: fixed my typos (again.)
