Subject: [PHP-DB] How to access a MS Access DB 

I need to know exactly how to hook up to an Access database under Office
Xp.  I normally use MySQL, but the current site sits on Windows servers.

I am using php 4.3.0
Office Xp Pro w/ Access
I'm running Apache 2.0.43

I need to know how to check if ODBC is set up on my machine (I hear that
by default it is) and what's this about a driver?

All I know at this point is 


Where XX is the DSN name I will be using, (how do this, i.e. set up a
DSN name)

Thanks much and in advance.
