I've worked with PHP and MySQL databases using forms, but I've never tried to use PHP and an MS Access database.
With MySQL databases you would use the built-in functions (mysql_query(), mysql_num_rows(), mysql_fetch_array() etc.)

This is only a guess, but perhaps you could use fopen() to open your database?

I'm sorry I can't be of much help, the best thing my reply can do is push the thread up a little bit so that maybe one of the geniuses around here could assist you.

Kind regards,


thanks dave found a solution to it already i should have marked it solved before now
