DSN less connection in mac

Postby bishmedia » Sun Aug 28, 2011 12:01 pm

Can i use microsoft access DB in mac?
In windows i set up dns to point to the *.mdb file then i used the following code which worked fine

<!--$odbc = odbc_connect ('logistics', 'root', '') or die('Could Not Connect to ODBC Database!');-->

so now i have a mac book and having set up Mamp and php i suddenly realise i cant run the above
code because there is no dsn. ive seen something like the following though but not sure .....

$connection = odbc_connect("Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=$mdbFilename", $user, $password);

Is there a way to do this in mac??????

i'm a linux guy however i think you need to download proprietary software for you connectivity

either try using "Actual ODBC Driver" for access using mac or follow the instructions at http://support.apple.com/kb/dl895
