If you're using Perl, you can use DBI or the win32::ODBC module directly.

Create a system datasource for your database using the ODBC settings in the Windows control panel. Let's say it's called nameofyourdatabase

In your Perl script write:

use DBI;

my $db = DBI->connect('DBI:ODBC:nameofyourdatabase', 'user', 'password');
my $query = 'SELECT * FROM whateveryourtableis';
my $prepquery = $db->prepare( $query );

# define variables to write fetch results to
my( $var1, $var2, $var3 );
$prepquery->bind_columns( \$var1, \$var2, \$var3 );

# print out results or do whatever you want with the data
while( $prepquery->fetch() ) {
  print "$var1, $var2, $var3\n";
