writes "I am working on a project using perl to connect ot an Access2000 DB on NT. All of the work I've done with perl so far has been on various *nix servers, but the person I am working with is well accomplished with NT. Despite this we are having great difficulty installing the ODBC::DBI to connect my perl app to the Access DB. Once I can get the perl script to get the info out of the fields, I'm fine, the rest is just banging me head against the screen until it does what I want. But I can't do that until this interface works.
Is there a breakdown for installing the DBI on NT somewhere or would someone do a favor and help me out?

However, we in the non-Windows population need to read about and learn from Windows problems, so we can help others similarly afflicted either to get their work done or have a good reason to leave Windows for greener pastures. --Chip]
