    You can try this code:

    $conn = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=".realpath("c:/test.mdb");

    $query = "SELECT name,salary FROM emp ";
    $rs = $conn->execute($query);
    $name = $rs->Fields(0);
    $sal = $rs->Fields(1);

    print "Name-------Salary";

    while (!$rs->EOF)
    echo $name->value";
    echo $sal->value";

    print "";

    $rs = null;
    $conn = null;

    Did you try to use the MySQL Control Center. Works like a charm and it's free !!!

    Go here to download it: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/other/mysqlcc.html

    Good luck.
