PHP / Synergy xfODBC connection

Recommended Posts

Our accounting software runs on the Synergy platform.  I'm trying to write some PHP code to extract(read-only) data from the Synergy database.  I have Synergy's xfODBC driver installed on my PC and can utilize it in Excel and Crystal reports like any other ODBC connection, but I cannot figure out the interface with PHP to allow it to access the database.  

 

I am running XAMPP on my workstation for testing, but would eventually move to a WinServer platform with IIS.

 

Am I the first to try this?  Surely not.  If anybody can assist, it would be most helpful.

 

Regards

Chris
