Re: getting data from a Microsoft Access DB (.mdb file)

in reply to getting data from a Microsoft Access DB (.mdb file)

The first place to start is http://mdbtools.sourceforge.net/. That has the tools needed to access the Jet database engine, which is the underpinning of MS Access, MS Money, and a few others.

The next step is to use DBD::ODBC and the ODBC driver that comes with MDBTools to access it. At this point, you're beyond my knowledge.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    You've been extremely helpful. I'm compiling mdbtools now and then I'll read through the docs. Thanks.
