    PHP read / writing to Access Database?

    I'm working on an application for a client and I need to read/write to an Access Database from PHP pages. After doing some reading I've determined that I'll probably attempt it with ODBC first so I can access the database.

    So, I've found quite a few sites that tell you how to read from an ODBC / Access database but none tell you how to write back to Access via ODBC.

    I'll be running PHP / Access / OBDC locally over a network and this particular application won't be online.

    Does anyone have any experience using PHP and a Microsoft Access database? I'm more of a PHP/MySQL guy so I'm all ears.

    Thanks!

    Get yourself either ADODB or PDO, with either there are drivers readily available for .mdb . You read or write using sql just like any other data base.

    In the hands of the inexperienced or uneducated,
    the results can be disastrous.
    While the professional can tame, master even conquer.
