mysql to Microsoft SQL

Hi list..

Currenly i'm using mysql database (windows 98 and perl)and now i have to change to Microsoft SQL database..So,

1) Is there a lot of things to be changed..

2) Can i use ODBC connection to connect to Microsoft SQL database.
If can, please give me an example..
if cannot, how to do connection to Microsoft SQL database..

3) I download mysql database from mysql.com, so, can i donwload Microsoft SQL from anywhere..

please help..


RE: mysql to Microsoft SQL

I don't have time to give a full answer.  A very good short answer is....
Get "Programming the Perl DBI" by Alligator Descartes & Tim Bunce, published by O'Reilly.  It covers the ODBC approach in detail and is a relatively quick read.

Good Luck..
