Brett,

Are you sure emacs is communicating with the SQL process? Keep in mind
that emacs cannot/does not communicate directly with the database - it
communicates with some program which then communicates with the
database. I don't know anything about MS SQL Server, but with Oracle
(as an example), Emacs SQL mode communicates with sqlplus, which is
Oracle's interface program for entering sql commands. I imagine SQL
Server has something similar. You need to ensure that emacs is
communicating with this program and the program is in turn
communicating with the SQL Server.
