in reply to Pulling data from an Access DB using Perl

And, in case you're curious, here's a throwaway program I threw together once just to see if I could get it to work:
use Win32::ODBC; $Data = new Win32::ODBC("DatbaseTest"); unless (defined($Data)) { print "Failed to connect to the DSN.\n"; exit(); } $command = qq{SELECT * FROM "Test Table" WHERE (("vacancy" = 'W9920') +AND ("FullName" CONTAINS 'ke'))}; if (! $Data->Sql($command)){ @FieldNames = $Data->FieldNames(); while($Data->FetchRow()){ undef %Data; %record = $Data->DataHash(); print "Name is $record{'FullName'}\n"; } exit(); } else { print "Error:".Win32::ODBC::Error(); }
This assumes, of course, that you have established an ODBC data source using the ODBC Control Panel in Win98/NT.
