Sure, if your website has a MySQL database, you will be able to access this
database from your PC when you are on-line.
All you need is the free MyODBC odbc drivers, install & configure them
(you'll need the IP address, name, username, password of your on-line
database). Then you can link up the MySQL database to anything on your PC -
MSAccess or even something a bit more stable...

The MyODBC drivers are available here: http://www.mysql.com/

If you have Personal Web Server then you can run asp pages on your
local machine which will be known as http://127.0.0.1 or
http://localhost.

You then write an asp page to read from the Access database in your
machine and then output the required data for insertion into the sql
database at the remote machine.
