Its gonna be a curve....its a more complex beast to manage than MySQL and there are llimitations such as:

Can't edit text fields with GUI tools
No regex in sql statements
DateTime handling differences
No simple paging based on LIMIT, $offset, $DisplayRecords

Personally its not my favorite to work with, I prefer mysql or oracle

Subject: [PHP-DB] Learning curve mysql-->mssql
Date: Mon, 25 Jul 2005 14:35:50 -0400

Does anyone have an idea what the learning curve is going from using php/mysql-->php/mssql? I am applying for a position which uses MS SQL Servers for a DB and ASP.NET (god forbid) for a front end and my only experience is WAMP. While I can convert over to php from ASP.NET, I am stuck with mssql. Anyone had any serious problems learning to use the two?
