A very good solution for connecting to an MS Access database is the odbtp extension. You can get it at http://odbtp.sourceforge.net. It provides support for many of Access's features, such as UNICODE text data and query processing, and stored query execution. An example on how to connect to a MS Access database is located at http://odbtp.sourceforge.net/storedqry_php.html. There are also odbtp drivers available for the PHP database abstraction layers ADODb and PEAR DB.
I would not recommend using the odbc extension with MS Access. The ODBC driver for MS Access is not thread-safe. Thus, it may cause unpredictable results if your script is run under IIS or Apache 2. The odbc extension is also considerably slower, and less capable in regards to MS Access. The odbtp ext will allow you to remotely connect to your Access database from any platform, such as Linux, Solaris, MacOS X and Novell. -- bob On Thu, 30 Sep 2004, Matthew Perry wrote: > Does anyone know of a good online source for using php and microsoft > access. > I don't want to have to use asp. > Thank you for your time. > > Matthew Perry > > -- > PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) > To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php > > -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
