Question microsoft access database on Unix

Hello,

I am a newborn baby to Unix and I was told that it was possible to have Microsoft Access databases on a Unix web server. I am using Perl to interface and query the Access database, which puts the information into the appropriate fields of a web page. Then updated information is submitted an inserted into the database.

Is this possibly on Unix with an Access database?

Thanks,
Pasquale

I have never heard of an Access database _running_ on a Unix box. You should be some Perl modules for ODBC access from a Unix box to a Win32 box that is the home of an Access database.

There should be some Unix native ODBC drivers for network access to an Access database running on a Win32 box.

I found these links from a quick Google search:

http://www.atinet.com/Products/OpenR.../ODBC_Unix.asp
http://www.openlinksw.com/info/docs/...x/odbcunix.htm
http://www.microsoft.com/office/proj...One/10ct_5.htm

I hope that this short list gets you started...
