MS Access using MySQL

P: 3
There have been several posts on having MS Access using MySQL as the backend db. I know that you have to set up an ODBC connection and use the MySQL odbc driver. What I want to know is how to set up Access to acutally use MySQL. Is there any on-line instructions or can anybody help here. Thanks.

U want that Access uses MySQL without ODBC driver like MsSQL Server isn't it?
I doubt that there isn't this oportunity!

Else you can use the databases of Mysql using suitable ODBC. Sometimes the connection is lost sometimes it works good...

Maybe you want to use commands like those in Php that establish the connection?

In this case you have to search for suitable dll to add in your system and in the references to your access database...

See on Mysql to search for this kind of dll
