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.
