Hello!.
=20
I have a problem when trying to connect to an access database:
=20
$con =3D odbc_connect($dsn,$user,$pass) or die(odbc_error());
=20
the error message i get is just this:
IM002
=20
the $dsn var only contains the name of a data source previously created fro=
m the windows control panel.
i already tested the $dsn making a connection with visual basic code and it=
works fine.
Also the user and pass are right. so i dont know what could be the problem.=
=20
=20
I am using PHP 5.2.4-win32. with apache 2.2.4.
=20
I really appreciate any help on this.
Alexander

I'd check the following in order...

1) Does the user running the web process have access to the file using
the path provided?
2) Did you set the DSN as a System DSN?
3) Try using a DSN-less connection, namely:

$dsn = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" + $fullpathtodb;
$con = odbc_connect($dsn,$user,$pass) or die(odbc_error());

Ok, it worked fine using the extended connection string you wrote in the ex=
ample.
I wonder if there is a way to connect to a remote database, what i'm doing =
now is upload the .mdb file to the server and use it as local, but it would=
be better connect to the remote system.

You can if the user that runs the web server process has access to
that file then yes. Or you could set an ODBC bridge, but to be honest
it's much faster and easier ( depending upon the application's
requirements of course ) to export it to a SQLite or MySQL DB on the
webserver.
