Try this.
#Windows-based Perl/DBI/MS Access example use DBI; #open connection to Access database $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:ODBC:Clients'); #prepare and execute SQL statement #note that the query ClientName etc below is just the example # suit it with your own requirement $sqlstatement="SELECT ClientName,ClientEmail FROM billing"; $sth = $dbh->prepare($sqlstatement); $sth->execute || die "Could not execute SQL statement ... maybe invalid?"; #output database results while (@row=$sth->fetchrow_array) { print "@row\n" }
If Microsoft Access is open and running while you try to execute these Perl scripts you may run into resource conflicts. If so, simply shutdown Microsoft Access before using Perl.

For further info read DBI module, besides searching the wealth of Perlmonks is always useful.
