ODBC-connect for APACHE server

Does anybody know of a way to establish an ODBC connection to dynamically create web page from a query?
This will have to work for an Apache server!

P.S.: Please don't post "no" as an answer!! I don't have enough points as it is (but could offer 100 points for a "yes" (if it works))

Thanks for your help!

I am not very familiar with Apache, so, if you even have ODBC installed, it is possible.  What type of machine is it on?  Unix?  Do you have the ASP extensions installed?

1) should be a Linux-server
2) ODBC installed? dunno...
3) ASP installed? I think so

This is not for "my" computer, it's for the company :-)

Take a look at php:  http://www.php.net

and MySQL Site:  http://www.tcx.se  (MySQL, iODBC)

Using both, you can create really amazing dynamic/data base driven sites.

MySQL is a database
PHP is a cgi/apache module that will extend html to a very complete programming language..(I.e. Perl)

If you need more help, please let me know.
