Windows 7, MS Access 2013, DBI question

(There is an answer to this question further down this thread!)

This is my first attempt to access a database with Perl. I have MS Access 2013 on my Windows 7 PC and I am used to working with it. I created a database using access. The filename is testDB.accdb.

I found the following code on line and gave it a try.

use Modern::Perl '2013'; 

my $dbLocation = 'C:\Users\Sandy\Documents\TestDB.accdb';
my $connectAccess = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)}; DBQ=$dbLocation ";
my $dbAccess = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:$connectAccess") or die $DBI::errstr;

and I got the following errors:

Name "DBI::errstr" used only once: possible typo at 
C:/Users/Sandy/workspace/Quickie/ line 5.
Can't locate object method "connect" via package "DBI" at
C:/Users/Sandy/workspace/Quickie/ line 5.

Iím a relative newbie to Perl, what am I missing?
