Zend Developer Zone:
Reading Access Databases with PHP and PECL
November 26, 2008 @ 13:26:12

The Zend Developer Zone has a new tutorial posted today from Vikram Vaswani about accessing a database with the help of the MDBTools PECL extension to read from a Microsoft Access datbase.

In this article, I'll introduce you to PHP's MDBTools extension, which provides an API to programmatically read data from Microsoft Access database files. If your project involves working with such files, extracting database records either for calculations or for conversion to other formats, you'll find this extension invaluable.
He steps through the installation of the extension (via the pecl command line tool) and some sample code that grabs the tables, all of their attributes and how to select the data out from them.
