Ah.  Thanks for the tip.
I will look into it; obviously, I would prefer the solution to
be engine independent, but this feature might be more valuable :-)

As usually, some good search engine (Google??? :D ) is your friend....

IMHO you have to always know which SQL engine is on the on the other side (in other words you have to know how to set up the connection string).
If you know the engine, you can decide which kind of SQL "slang" to use: http://www.petefreitag.com/item/466.cfm
