    Red face Unanswered: Connect MS-ACCESS to MySql

    Hello everyone,

    I wonder if someone can help, i'm new to MySQL and to RDBMS, i've Created a small database with a GUI tool (DbSchema) and i want to be able to connect with MS-ACCESS to the database and i don't know how, i was reading on some forums that i'll need to install some drivers, but i didn't quite understand why, because i already have the MySQL on my machine and i just one to connect locally.

    Cheers

    MS Access does permit connections to other databases using ODBC. You will need to download the connector for this and then configure the connection in Windows Data Sources. I did this once a long time ago with Oracle but cannot remember the actual steps. In any case to download the ODBC connector have a look here

    Thanks for the replay, i did that but the problem is that the driver is not displayed in MS-ACCESS 2003.
    Any other ideas?

    Thanks.
