Using ADO seems easier than using DAO/Jet. Here is a bit that reads a database (never got as far as looking at writing, let alone writing a blob, so might not help much).
#Using ADO from PERL use Win32::OLE; my $Conn=Win32::OLE->new('ADODB.Connection') or die "Unable to create +ADODB.Connection"; #NB.You will need to set up the DSN in the ODBC Data Manager (Control +Panel) # MUST be done on the System DSN tab, you may to enter user name an +d password #Don't or die on these methods - it dies every time! $Conn->Open("<db name in Data Manager>","<optional userid>","<optional + password>"); $RS=$Conn->Execute("SELECT * FROM <table>"); $RS->MoveFirst(); until ($RS->Eof()) { print $RS->Fields->{'Name'}->Value,"\n"; $RS->MoveNext(); } $RS->Close; $Conn->Close;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
