PHP to MS Access

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I know that it can be done... I'm sure of it. I need to connect PHP to a Microsoft Access database [b]without[/b] using ODBC. If this can be done i would then like to add, change and delete records withing a table in the Access database. So how do I do it, what's the code? Any useful links?

Thanks in advance =)

Um, why limit yourself by not using ODBC?

That is certainly the easy way.

You can do API calls or whatever but ODBC would certainly be the easy way out for most any application I can think of...

I'm curious why you don't want to use ODBC?

Hi,

If you read this... as it has been a while. Sorry about that.

OK, firstly how does ODBC work, don't you have to put the ODBC program on the server that you are running the php files on? Or perhaps I am mistaken; if I am please could you give me a few useful links or just tell me briefly about it. Otherwise I cannot use ODBC because I am using some free webspace on someone elses server.
