I might give DBD::Sybase a try when I get to that point. For right now though I cannot even get the FreeTDS part working. Thanks for the suggestion though!

In my opinion, with Perl you're better off using DBD::Sybase with FreeTDS.
It communicates with Microsoft servers just fine. You have one less
layer (no DM) to configure. The only advantage to ODBC is placeholder
It's not an either/or thing. DBD::ODBC and DBD::Sybase can be used by the
same script if need be. So you can give them both a try, if you like.
