using a remote MySQL Database in MS Access

P: n/a
Hello

Probably, this is a beginners question, but I am stuck on it.
I am trying to use a MYSQL Database on a remote server from
inside an MS Access program.

Therefore I have to create an ODBC data source.
Now is my question: Where can I do this.

I suppose it is the Windows Start | Control Panel | Admin Tools | Data Sources
menu, but there, I cannot find what selections I have to make for a remote
MySQL Database. I don't have a "MySQL" driver or something.

Thanks for any help.

Go to Google.com & enter the following as a search string:

"mysql driver"

You get thousands of references.
