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.

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