How can we connect a PHP script to MS Access (.mdb) file?

I tried by including following PHP code:

$db_path = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '\WebUpdate\\' . $file_name . '.mdb';
$cfg_dsn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" . $db_path;
$odbcconnect = odbc_connect($cfg_dsn, '', '');

But it failed and I received following error message:

 Warning: odbc_connect() [function.odbc-connect]: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified, SQL state IM002 in SQLConnect in C:\web\WebUpdate\index.php on line 41

Here's a sample for a connect and a simple select...

<?php
$db_conn = new COM("ADODB.Connection");
$connstr = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=". realpath("./Northwind.mdb").";";
$db_conn->open($connstr);
$rS = $db_conn->execute("SELECT * FROM Employees");
$f1 =  $rS->Fields(0);
$f2 =  $rS->Fields(1);
while (!$rS->EOF)
{
    print $f1->value." ".$f2->value."<br />\n";
    $rS->MoveNext();
}
$rS->Close();
$db_conn->Close();
?>
