BTW, I highly recommend using the DBI module over Win32::ODBC

Don't forget that you'll also need DBD::ODBC as well.

    A lot depends on the monk's RDBMS. I prefer a native DBD::MySQL driver to the more generic ODBC connect, but to each their own.

    snippet to list ODBC data sources:

    #! perl -w use strict; use DBI; my @driver_names = DBI->available_drivers; print join("\n",@driver_names), "\n"; my @dataSources = DBI->data_sources ("ODBC"); print join("\n-",@dataSources);
