I would be realy greatfull if anyone could help me. As part of a private project I would like to view a Mysql database in MS excel or access. So far I have only found tools that let you connect to a database directly and then convert the files. The problem is that the MySql database is hosted on a virtual server and as such only alows conections from the localhost. Is there any way to convert the SQL dump into the required format?

Any help will be very greatly recieved
