Help!! I cannot INSERT INTO queries with odbc_exec

Recommended Posts

I am newbie with php, and I am using Win XP and IIS and my web server is in the localhost.

about read only attribute I did check on MS Access File>DataBase Properties in the General tab and the Attributes group is disabled (light grayed) but I acn see the check read only unchecked.

Also if I check the attributes outside from Access i.e. Windows Explorer the attribute flag readonly in unchecked too.

I post a check list of what I did.

1.create a MS Access Database (blank database) from the MS Access task pane.

2.locate the database outside the root path of the web folder.
My root path for web is c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite and the folder for the db is in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite_db

3.I created a SystemDSN and give it the user and admin in advanced options of the ODBC Manager.

4.Wrote this code:

[code]$val = array();
$sql="exec user_A 'pepe', 'pepe','123456','pepe@pipo.pp','','123456',0";
$rs = odbc_exec($con, $sql);
odbc_free_result ( $rs );
odbc_close( $con );[/code]

First I used to login with blank admin and pwd. Then I attached the account Admin of the Access database a paswword. I still get the same ODBC error:

[color=green]Warning: odbc_exec() [function.odbc-exec]: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query., SQL state S1000 in SQLExecDirect [/color]

I still didn't get an idea of what is going on.
thanks in advance
