    Not to be rude, but there are a ton of nodes right here on PM that could help you out. Just type in ms sql in the 'search' box that's at the top of every single page.

    For future reference: the more information you provide with your question the better. Do you need to just SELECT data? Do you need read/write access? Are you connecting from a Unix, Win32, or other type of machine? What have you tried so far? What resources have you checked out? Monks, like most people on the internet, generally help people who can help themselves :-)

    Well, here are some more links/information that will help:

    Michael Peppler's homepage: the guy not only wrote several Sybase modules for Perl (and I thank him a lot for that!), but also has a webpage full of information on how to get everything up and running.
    FreeTDS: you will need either this, or the Sybase libraries, if you're running Perl on *nix.

    I have set up a Linux box with FreeTDS and Peppler's DBD::Sybase to talk to SQL Server 2000 on NT. Speed is not great, but it's serviceable.
