    Unanswered: Accessing MySQL database on Linux Server from Windows Access

    How can I access to a MySQL database running on a linux server? I will have to establish an internet connection. Is there any experience amongst this forum with sending SQL Queries out on Visual Basic? I read something with an ODBC driver for acces from MySQL, but some say this will not work from Windows to Linux....

    Please give me a hint. I go crazy about this, its so complicated...

    I have never tried this, but I have connected to MSSQL and Oracle via ODBC on a LAN.

    To make your problem simpler, first download MySql for Windows and try connecting to it using Access and ODBC. Then try with MySQL on Linux on the same LAN. Then try over the internet. Unless, of course, someone already knows for sure that this won't work.
