    Convert Exisitng Access Database to Access Frontend MySQL backend

    Hi all



    I am stuck in a quagmire. I need to move the database off to a external server which has Mysql on it. The database is built up with a lot of forms and queries on it.

    I have not seen an easy way to export my tables to mysql. The more worriesome issue is that will everything break if I were to try and link and run my existing queires forms and reports ?

    What do you mean by "external server"? Access will not work well on a WAN or over the internet. It isn't designed for that.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
