Hi!  I'm relatively new to DB's, though not to Python.  I simply need to
learn how to programmatically put data--obtained using a Python
script--into an existing Access DB.  I've searched and I've searched,
found a few brief examples of how to connect--using, e.g., sqlite3--but
when I execute a query, I'm told the file I've connected to is either
encrypted or not a DB; it may be the former (I don't know how to tell
for certain, but I can access it using MATLAB's database toolbox w/out
any explicit decryption), but it definitely is a DB.  Can anyone refer
me to a relevant cookbook or pretty complete example set?  Thanks!
