ActiveState perl comes with DBD::ODBC pre-installed. You shouldn't need to re-install it.

However, ActiveStatePerl does not have DBI preinstalled. You'll need to use the Perl Package Module to get it. Type "ppm" at a command prompt or find the file in your Perl/Bin/ppm.bat directory. It will bring up the installer. In that, type "install dbi" and watch it go. Actually, it does very little and very slowly for a while, but trust me, it's working. I did it just today actually.

My current problem is that I can't seem to make a connection to my database through ODBC. Which wouldn't be so bad, except that I'm working at a Japanese company and can't read the SQL server dialog boxes to go fix anything. ;)

Have you downloaded Win32::ODBC?

Win32::ODBC along with the MS MDAC 2.1 drivers and ActiveState should get you setup to use Perl/ODBC/SqlServer on NT.
