    Access program which connects to mysql on server without installing odbc on local machine

    My access program which resides in my \\server2003 server connects to mysql using mysql odbc. Currently only local / workstation computers who have the MySQL odbc driver installed can access the contents of the program.

    Is it possible to install the mysql odbc driver in the \\server2003 server so no local or workstations have to install the odbc driver so the access program can be used in a global way?

    There is VBA to link MySQL databases without the ODBC driver. Search for it.

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