[tpm] Exporting Access files to .csv

I have written a perl script using DBI ADO. The
select and print statements work. I am using the
join statement to separate the fields by ',' but
I can't figure out a way to get the text fields
quoted so the output resembles the CSV output by msaccess.
Example output from access:
240,10,"SPACE:LGT-W/A","if( Local( ZONE-TYPE )
== 1 then 1 endif","Set lighting power","126.96.36.199","db 2012-04-19 - added",1,0
The field types:
number, number, text, memo, text, text, memo, integer, integer.
The output from my script:
240,10,SPACE:LGT-W/A,if( Local( ZONE-TYPE ) ==
1 then 1 endif,Set lighting power,188.8.131.52,db 2012-04-19 - added,1,0
Thanks for any insight!
