ODBC Function vs Microsoft SQL Server Function

Recommended Posts


I am wondering, can anybody tell me the difference in using the ODBC Function to connent to a Microsoft SQL Server comparing to the Microsoft SQL Server Function. Because I have decided to use Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition as my back end, and I have try the ODBC Function already. Buy I just found out that there is also function specified for Microsoft SQL Server.
I Hope that some can give some advice regading this two type of function.

Thanks.

Which ever database you use as the back end try as far as possible to use the corresponding php functions. Doing so lets you use all the 'special functionality' of that particular database. Using generic php database functions limits what you can do as to be generic means it will only have the functionality that is applicable to 'all' (I say all meaning most) database.
