Perl and Access

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Daniel Bergquist, Jun 4, 2004.

  1. I'm looking to use Perl to automate data entry to an Access database.
    I have very little experience with Access, so I have no idea where to
    begin. Could someone point me to a straightforward method for doing
    so? I will be using Activestate's win32 version of perl for this.


    Thanks

    Hi,

    Look into the DBD::ODBC module (Open DataBase Connectivity).
    From memory, you set up an ODBC source pointing to an access database, then
    use the above module to connect to it.

    Regards,
    Chris
