I would like to use a Perl script to Querry or update
a MS Access database or any desktop database.

Actually i use MS Peer Web Services as a server
but i don't want to use MS solutions (ISAPI and htx-idc files)to access small databases, i would prefer a Perl
script.

Is it possible ???

If no, do you have a couple of URL to refer me where i
can find info about accessing small and large database
with CGI????

Thank you in advance

Yes it is possible, although I wouldn't say easy by any means.  I am not sure about MS Access but perl will support ODBC.  Aggod place to start looking would be http://www.roth.net/odbc/
