I need to develop an interface between a unix box (AIX and MS Project.  I figure the easiest way to
do this is by saving the Project as an MS ACCESS
database then using ODBC for the interface.  I have
been working at this off and on for several days and
my current direction is to use DBI::Proxy and unixODBC
(http://www.unixodbc.org/) to facilitate the

First I will state my question, then give the history:

Has anyone successfully created an interface from a
unix system to MS Access running on NT or 2000? If so,

While trying to install unixODBC, I was informed that
I needed to install QT: "The GUI components
(ODBCConfig and DataManager) require Qt 2.2."

While trying to build QT, I had troubles with a module
named qlist.cpp.  I seemed to have eliminated those
problems by turning off the optimization flags
(removed xlC flags: -qstrict -03)  But now I am stuck
with unresolved symbols:

ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol:
.PrintOut::Box::operator==(const PrintOut::Box&) const

So, does anyone have any ideas on how I could proceed?
