in thread Perl & Microsoft Access

thatīs right. but if you are a windows programmer that has already used DAO/RDO-objects in other languages you might find that easier/more familiar.
Also you can address the .mdb-files as files. You donīt have to set up an ODBC-connection for every database you wanīt to use. Acccess sees databases as files, and that is, IMHO, the most valuable feature of Access. You donīt have to struggle with tablespaces, usernames/passwords and other things that come with a DBMS like Oracle and the like.

    That's also true with DBI ... here's an example of a DSN-less connection to MS Access via DBI.

    good point, that's certainly one reason why someone might prefer the Win32::OLE route.
