I would like to know the the same thing, I am .Net developer with a bit of basic Obj C knowledge. Just a connection string would be great.

Below is the code for connecting to a MSSQL Server database.
$myServer = "localhost";
$myUser = "your_name";
$myPass = "your_password";
$myDB = "examples";
//connection to the database
$dbhandle = mssql_connect($myServer, $myUser, $myPass)
or die("Couldn't connect to SQL Server on $myServer");
//select a database to work with
$selected = mssql_select_db($myDB, $dbhandle)
or die("Couldn't open database $myDB");
//declare the SQL statement that will query the database
$query = "SELECT id, name, year ";
$query .= "FROM cars ";
$query .= "WHERE name='BMW'";
//execute the SQL query and return records
$result = mssql_query($query);
$numRows = mssql_num_rows($result);
echo "<h1>" . $numRows . " Row" . ($numRows == 1 ? "" : "s") . " Returned </h1>";
//display the results
while($row = mssql_fetch_array($result))
echo "<li>" . $row["id"] . $row["name"] . $row["year"] . "</li>";
//close the connection

You need some type of client library for MS SQL Server written in C/C++ that you can compile/link into your iOS code, that is not under any license incompatible with App Store rules (i.e. not GPL).
I don't think there is one readily available (thought if you could find source code for Sybase Open Client under a free license that might work).
Your best bet is to setup a Web Service intermediary between your iOS app and the SQL Server (REST, anyone?).Starlight Computer Wizardry
