schweini has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi there,

Does anyone know if there is a DBD::sds module somewhere I haven't heard about? I found DBD::Excel and a DBD for almost any format imaginable, but none for the OpenDocument Spreadsheet format, which strikes me as odd.
DBD::AnyData claims to be able to read from XML, so this might work somehow, but does anyone have the required configuration? Thanks,

    a) yes DBD::AnyData handles XML that contains table-like fields and columns b) if ODS requires more specific treament, I'd be glad to help customize AnyData - I'm its author and c) my guess is that ODS can be accessed via the OpenDocument database drivers which may be ODBC, I dunno much about it, but if they are, then DBD::ODBC might work.
