      Please don't tell me not to use Access, as I know it is not good,

        How are you accessing the db? CGI, command line, etc.

        What operating system are you using? IIS, Win32, *nix, etc.

        Do you have access to ODBC?

        Will you be using perl or perlscript?

        First, you can use DBI and connect to your access DB if you have it registered on the server. That is what I am doing right now. Second, why is it not good,

          Second, why is it not good, bad, very bad, extremely bad? Actually, What are
          the advantages of MySQL over Microsoft Access? My webhost doesnt charge for
          Access DBs, but charges $20 a year for a MySQL account, so I really want to
          know.

          When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that
          ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA
          scientists spent a decade and 12 Billion Dollars to develop a pen that writes
          in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including
          glass
          and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300C.

            Access was originaly designed as a "one user" database and has been
            known to break under heavy load (too many people accessing the data
            at the same time). I don't know what is the current situation though.
