zer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Good evening

With my DataSource: dbi:ADO:Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\somedir\Desktop\sqr\srv\TngDB.mdb. I have been getting the following error:

unknown database Ms_Jet - using GenericSubQ dialect at C:/Perl/site/li +b/SQL/Abstract/Limit.pm line 406, <$F> line 21029. DBIx::Class::ResultSet::find_or_create(): DBI Exception: DBD::ADO::st +execute failed: Can't Execute Command 'SELECT me.id, me.Course FROM C +ourse me WHERE ( me.Course = ? )' Package : DBD::ADO::st Filename : C:/Perl/site/lib/DBD/ADO.pm Line : 1234 Last error : -2147217904 OLE exception from "Microsoft JET Database Engine": Parameter ?_1 has no default value.

If i change to DataSource: dbi:ODBC:driver=Microsoft Access Driver(*.mdb);dbq=C:\Users\somedir\Desktop\sqr\srv\TngDB.mdb I get:

DBIx::Class::ResultSet::find_or_create(): DBI Connection failed: DBI c +onnect('dr iver=Microsoft Access Driver(*.mdb);dbq=C:\Users\somedir\Desktop\sqr\s +rv\TngDB.mdb' ,'',...) failed: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not + found and no default driver specified (SQL-IM002) at C:/Perl/site/lib/DBIx/Clas +s/Storage/ DBI.pm line 950

This is code which works with my SQLite3 db's however I can't seem to do anything to make it work with MS Access.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use feature ':5.10'; use lib 'lib'; use SPFHandler; use DBFacade; use YAML; use Data::Dumper; my $config = YAML::LoadFile('config.yml')->{Database}->{$^O}; my $db = DBFacade->connect($config->{DataSource}, $config->{Username}, $config->{Password}, $config->{DBIAttributes}, $config->{ExtraAttributes}, ) or die 'Could not connect'; my $rspc =$db->resultset('PersCourse'); my $rsp =$db->resultset('Pers'); my $rsc =$db->resultset('Course'); open (my $F, $ARGV[0])or die 'No file specified'; my @FILE = <$F>; my $SPF = SPFHandler->new(@FILE); $SPF->Parse(); open my $f, '>tmp/out.txt'; print $f Dumper $SPF; my $c = 0; my $i=0; for my $file(@{$SPF->Files()}){ my $pers = $rsp->find_or_create({SN=>$file->SN}); if ($file->Courses){ for my $course(keys %{$file->Courses}){ my $crse = $rsc->find_or_create({Course=>$course}); $rspc->find_or_create ( { CourseCode=>$file->Courses->{$course}->{id}, DateField=>$file->Courses->{$course}->{date}, CourseId=>$crse->get_column('id'), PersId=>$pers->get_column('id') } ); } } $i++; }

I am running vista, and the msjet40.dll exists. I would appreciate any help i can get with this

Thank You

    The driver should be "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)" not "Microsoft Access Driver(*.mdb)". Whether that will be enough for SQL::Abstract::Limit to select the right syntax is a question.

    Look into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI for the list of installed drivers.

      Thank you, this worked like a charm!
