I forgot to mention that I have also used PHP with MSSQL srvr too with
out any real problem... using both ODBC and the native mssql_

My last foray with PHP and MSSQL srvr was using PEAR DB.  Regardless
of Rasmus' reservations of using such an abstraction over calling the
functions directly, I like the PEAR way of doing things, and the over
head for me was not an issue that is of any concern (very low usage).
