ADO supposedly works great:

my $db_file = 'd:\path\to\database.mdb'; my $db_user = 'username'; my $db_passwd = 'pasword'; my $dbh = DBI->connect( 'dbi:ADO:Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='.$db_file, $db_user, $db_passwd ) or die $DBI::errstr; ...

It bypasses ODBC which ends up connecting to the Jet Engine anyway. It also saves you from creating ODBC DSNs in the Control Panel. (yeah, I suppose you could use DSN-less ODBC connection, but people don't seem to do that for some reason.)

Update: oops, this was supposed to be a reply to the OP.
