Connecting MSAccess to a MYSQL back-end data source

P: n/a
Hopefully, someone will take the time to answer this. I have MYSQL
back-end data source that I would like to link MSAccess to. My goal is
to use Access to query specific pieces of information from the MYSQL
database. I have downloaded the ODBC driver from MYSQL and managed to
link Access to the MYSQL tables once. But, I cannot create querys to
obtain any information. I think I am missing something. I am not a
computer whiz, although I am probably more versed than MANY. If
someone could give the correct procedures (step-by-step would be
wonderful) it would be greatly appreciated. I run Windows XP Pro and
MS Office Pro.
