Creating Linked server to SYBASE from SQL Server

In this article we going to look into creating a heterogeneous linked server. i.e. We are going to create a linked server to SYBASE database server from SQL Server environment and then going to query datas from Sybase. First step in heterogeneous linked server is to create a ODBC connection to that RDBMS platform. For creating ODBC connection we need the ODBC drivers for that RDBMS platform. In this case we need Sybase driver in client machine, this is not included in windows so you need to download it from Sybase Website. Lets discuss on this step by step
