Re^6: Connecting to sqlserver2008 - DBD::Sybase connectivity and unixODBC issue
in thread Connecting to sqlserver2008 - DBD::Sybase connectivity and unixODBC issue
As I explained before, I don't use DBD::Sybase and the comment about the interfaces file was if you were connecting to Sybase - which I see you are not right now.
You have completed all the steps I know about to connect to MS SQL Server as far as ODBC is concerned - the problem is your ODBC driver now. I've never used that ODBC driver and I believe the error is from the driver. The MS SQL Server ODBC driver I use is a commercial one my company sells.
