hi, anyone here has experience with microsoft sql server? i did this little program: #!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'dbi' conn = DBI.connect('DBI:ODBC:jornaldedebates', 'sa', 'fodase') puts conn.tables but when i try to run it, i get this error: paulo@shuffle:~/Desktop/tmp/sql$ ./dbi.rb /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/DBD/ODBC/ODBC.rb:95:in `connect': IM003 (0) [iODBC] [Driver Manager]Specified driver could not be loaded (DBI::DatabaseError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:424:in `connect' from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:215:in `connect' from ./dbi.rb:4 any ideas?

I wrote a tutorial on using SQL Server for Rails development with Ruby In Steel here: http://www.sapphiresteel.com/Using-SQL-Server-With-A-Rails Naturally, the tutorial includes much that is specific to Ruby In Steel. However, it may also give you some help on using SQL Server and Ruby in general. best wishes Huw Collingbourne http://www.sapphiresteel.com Ruby Programming In Visual Studio 2005

Since you're connecting to MSSQL you'll probably have an installation of FreeTDS lying around, which needs to be correctly configured, too. There are console tools for both components which can be used to put the finger on the failing link in the chain. ruby - dbi - odbc -- unixODBC - freetds -- network -- mssql The error message tells me that you're reaching odbc from the left, I also assume that you can actually connect via TCP/IP with the given authentication data to MSSQL and that you can ping the Windows box. But there are still two possible points of failure left. HTH s.
