I would STRONGLy recommend using ASP rather than PERL... It has a much nicer and easier interface when connecting...

What does "It has a much nicer and easier interface when connecting..." mean?

asp isn't a bad idea if it's available, but it may not be an option in this case and there are cases where perl is a better choice anyway due to the required processing.

ncw, look at http://www.roth.net/odbc/ it has information on Win32::ODBC which can be used to talk to an Access database.
