Hi Mangesh:

PHP connects to Access databases via the odbc_connect() function.  The 
$dsn parameter is the (simple, human readable) "Data Source Name" you've 
assigned to the resource in Windows' ODBC Data Source Administrator.

Try making a simple test script that uses odbc_connect().  Once you get 
that working, then try to bring ADODB into the mix.
