Locally on my computer my connection to the database works fine but the moment I upload my file to the web server, and submit a form I receive the error. 

Webserver Information
Operating System: Windows 
PHP Version: PHP 5.x IIS 
Version: IIS 7.0  

code tried but no luck

Reproduce code:
function connect_to_database($dsn, $user, $password)
//create a connection to the database
$conn = odbc_connect($dsn, $user, password,SQL_CUR_USE_DRIVER);
   //if the connection failed display the appropriate message
    }//end if(_);

     //return connection has been established.
     return $conn;
    }//end else

}//end connect_to_database(_);

Expected result:
I expected a successful return since every thing on the webserver(Godaddy) is setup correctly according to their test.

Actual result:
"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 "

Unless that specified driver isnt installed on the client machine for ODBC to use, then it will fail. You need the MySQL Connector thru ODBC to make use of the ODBC functions for talking to mysql via ODBC.

Thank you for taking the time to write a response.

WebServer Solution
//where $path = C:/a_path/on/my_web_server/my_db_folder/

$path = $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]) . "\\db\\database.mdb";

$dbq  =  str_replace("/", "\\", $path );


 $conn = odbc_connect("Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};
                     Dbq=$dbq;", 'test', '1234');
  die(); }//end if(_);
  //SQL Command

  //sends sql command to the server
  $rs = odbc_exec($conn,$sql);

 }//end else

 //closes the connection to the database

}//end else

After trying it in my webserver with the domain name along with the correct directory this doesn't work.

1. Is this a permission issue itself on the folder/file since it works now with the correct path not with or something else?

2. Any documents you have on this would be of great importance to me.

3. Is this actually a driver issue since it works now?

4. I will try your advice and post my result.
