    Unanswered: connecting to an advantage streamline database

    I am trying to connect to a remote access database with php. The system dsn for the database is Advantage StreamlineSQL ODBC. I have tried installing Advantage PHP Driver and using the ads functions includes with that to no avail.

    I have tried odbc_connect( ) and com objects, all with no luck.

    Again I am trying to connect to an Access database located at ip address/path/to/db.mdb using php and I have no idea what I am doing.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Use an Access ODBC driver when connecting to access. Use an Advantage StreamlineSQL ODBC driver when connecting to Advantage DB Server.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Ok, do you have any idea what the connection string would look like? Surely it has to have the ip address of the remote server somewhere?

    I don't mean to sound rude but I am posting to this forum and others because I've already spent several hours on google and have yet to find an answer.

    I doubt many, if any, of the people on here have any experience of this. A quick google and I can't see how this is even related to Access - looks like a Sybase product.

    I think perhaps you would be better served with another forum. Looking here, there is a dedicated AdvantageDB forum.
