    Pardon me if this is a very naieve question.  I'm about to become a Newbie.  Our account system is about to be ported to Microsoft SQL Server 7 on W2000 & it is not clear to me from the list of platforms wether this is supported or not.

      I now know that the answer is yes.

      I'd like to configure/build RexxSQL to work with MS-SQLServer. What database option do I set for the "configure" script ?

      I've gotten this to work with an ODBC data source defined.  However, I'd ideally like to get this to work without that.  Does anyone know the proper sqlconnect call format to make this happen?  I've tried and I just get return code -76.  Or since MSSQL isn't in the list of supported databases, maybe using ODBC is the only way?

      If you want to connect without setting up a DSN for ODBC, then use a connect string. For example, with the test program that comes with the software, use the command (adapted appropriately):

        rexxsql simple.cmd serv="Driver={SQL Server};Server=Machine1\SQLSERVERNAME;db=master;Trusted_Connection=Yes" 

      or rc = sqlconnect( "C1", , , , connect_string ) -- connect_string works as above.

      In the first example,Trusted_Connection=Yes could be replaced by "uid=myname;pwd=myPass" as needed.
