    easiest is probably to use a tool such as dbtools

    alternatively
    export the DDL

    or failing that there is the long way round using something like MySQL Administrator to create the ctbales and columns manually

    dbtools does a fair job of exporting data and structure.. but doesn't do a 'perfect' job.. the assumptions it makes aren't neccesarily the best solution.

    exporting the DDL like wise

    re-creating the structure in MySQL adminstrator is probbaly not for the newcomer

    Pervasive Software has some data tools you should look at. You can convert each table in Access to a new MySQL table as long as the MySQL database has been created. It also does a pretty good job of automatically converting data types where they differ. Here's a link to the Pervasive DataTools site. Try the UpLoader to MySQL. I think you'll find it useful.
