Hi there, I'm trying to use Win32-ODBC-0.034 in Activestate Perl 5.6.1 on WinXP to create DSNs for MSSQL, where my connection string requires a port number (the instance is not running on the default port of 1433). For example: my $result = Win32::ODBC::ConfigDSN(ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN, "SQL Native Client", ( "DSN=test_dsn", "SERVER=myservername\\myinstancename,2815", "DATABASE=test_db" ) ); I'm getting an error [911] [] "Illegal use of reserved characters []{}(),?*!@;", regarding the comma in the connection string. Creating a DSN manually using odbcad32.exe, a server name in the form "myservername\myinstancename,2815" is legal (and required in my situation). Can you provide a fix, or suggest a workaround? Thanks, Tom
