Thank you! I have v 5.5.05, so I will have to get our system admin to set up the OpenServer Gateway. I was also trying 4.2, so I was never going to get there!

Yes, but what you have to do depends on the version you run.
Specifically you must run 5.0.03 or higher. If running version 5.x you
must run the "OpenServer Gateway" on the Novell server (it comes with
SQL Any). Somewhere after 5.x (version 6.0 i think but definately
by version 7) Sybase made TDS support native, so this is not necessary.
In any event you must use TDS version 5.0, I have been unable to get 4.2
to work (I don't know if 4.2 is intended to work or not).
jkl, can we get this Q added to the FAQ?
