[GRLUG] Access->MySQL with GUI

One option is to locate an ODBC driver for mySQL, then setup linked tables in Access.

The most recent version of Access I've used is 2000, so I can't really provide specific details beyond this.


To clarify - I want to keep the Access GUI, although not necessarily in Access.
i.e. I need forms, queries, reports, etc.
I'm not a php guru and I would prefer not to do it web based in this case.
That doesn't leave many options I think.
With the exception of DBACentral I mentioned before, I have not found any other solutions for this.
Of course I would prefer an open source solution.

I need to rebuild an Access DB for use by multiple sites concurrently and have it pull data from an Oracle DB.
I don't want to use Access for a frontend if I can help it.

Google shows lots of options. http://microolap.com/products/database/mydbacentral/ looks promising for commercial.

A pointer in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
