Re: Is there a...DBD for MS ACCESS; direct access
[In reply to]
Honestly, you'd be better of exporting the data from your .mdb to, say, CSV or XML and then use those flatfiles as is (DBD::AnyData, DBD::CSV, DBD:xSV, etc)or as data to feed into a SQL db running on your target OS.
Another possibility if you have MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle or any other db that has Windows ODBC drivers available, is to have your copy of Access use a DSN that points directly to the db on the non-Windows OS.
With MySQL, you'll want to use either MyODBC (ships with MySQL for Win32) or AccessMySQL
