Message #1 by "Vikas Athavale" <vikaspa@b...> on Sat, 28 Sep 2002 21:11:28
Please help  !!

I want to know how to  read file from HArd Disk (assume it is sequential 
file)
or
CD ROM
or any other drive on LAN (But not on web)


What is the way to read  Excel or Access file from HArd disk

The profrom will be running on web and read data from Local Hard Disk or 
Cd ROM

With regards
Vikas AThavale

Uh, does "local" mean the server hard disk, or the client?  If it's the server,
you can use the filesystem functions that have always been available to you.
If it's the client, you can't do it with PHP.

If you'd like to read Microsoft files, like Access or Excel, then you should
use the COM extension to PHP to open and interface with those files.
