What should I do to link my CGI program, written in Perl, to a Microsoft Access Database. I want to select the records in the Access database using a query and display them in a HTML file dynamically using Perl( the Query is based on the FOrm submitted to the perl program).

If I have to use any DBD module or DBI ...please let me know where i can find them

Try this:
http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/authors/id/DAVEROTH/Win32odbc_v970208.zip

that's an ODBC module that will work with MS Access DSN.
Should be fairly easy to install, but of course you'll need to set up a correct DSN entry for that.
