Yes, you can do that.  Besides the standard perl, you need the following: odbc driver, perl-odbc module.  You can download them on the net, just do a search for "odbc".  If you can not find them, I can provide the url or other help if you have problem using it.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Is it possible append and update information in DBF or MDB DATABASES utilizing my Perl Library OBC?
Where do I found information about this?
