blast ... hit some key and Gmail just sent what I had typed so far.

At any rate, hopefully you can get the idea from that last post. Look
at this reference for handling different types returned from COM:


I would also suggest looking into a PHP library for querying SQL
Server rather than relying on COM. There are several, some work better
than others. I've found that the SQL Server Driver for PHP works best
for what I use. It is documented as being for 2005 and newer, but I
have been able to use it just fine with 2000 as well.
