Hello everyone,

Welcome to Bytes.com!!!

Can you give more details. That is a very vague description. Do you have any sample code that we can look at?

thanks Kevin!

I have not written any code for this project yet since I am still trying to gather enough info to tackle the problem. What I want to do is output the data I show in my webpage to a MS Access file at the user request, so they can download the file to their PC. I have done this with MS Excel since Perl has the package Spreadsheet::WriteExcel. My website is set up on a SuSE Linux and I have access to an Windows machine on my network if I have to install Access there.
Any help or direction you can me give is appreciated.

Well, my first suggestion is that you have a look at the DBI page on CPAN. That will show you how to use the DBI module. Using that, you can issue the necessary commands to not only populate the database, but create it as well if needed.

Hope that is what you are looking for. As Kevin said, still a little vague.

Regards,

Jeff
