Accessing a Microsoft Access Database

Hello all,

I'm relatively new to the list, so I'm sorry if I'm going over old
ground here !

I would like to use PERL to view information in a Microsoft Access
and then use this information in other programs away from the Database.
Trouble is, I'm slightly confused by all the information on offer and am
not sure=20
of the best way to proceed to allow PERL to gain the information in the
and I'm also unsure exactly what I need to install on the machine.

Does anybody know of a useful web site that I can look at or does
anybody have
any simple-ish steps to follow so I can understand what needs to be

I'm running PERL 5 on a UNIX machine and have the database on the same

Any help, gratefully received.
