Hi there, I'm new at MySQL-PHP3 programming. I want to know where I can find a manual about the installation of MySQL on WIN NT 4 correctly.
Another thing I'd like to know is if there is an easy way to export an Access database to MySQL or I have to do a PHP program using ODBC to export it to MySQL????

I have been exporting data from access tables into MySQL database. The process is pretty straight forward. Export your access database as a text file. The detault options will give you a file delimited with ',' and text fields enclosed in '"'. Now simple use the load infile command with the options delimited with ',' and optionally enclosed with '"'. This imports the table in MySQL database perfectly.
Hope this works for you.

You can download MyODBC from the MySQL site, and keep constant OBDC connectivity between Access and MySQL. Works great!

Thanks both of you. Your answers were very helpful.
Unfortunately, I can't use MyODBC because my web server provider doesn't have it and doesn't like to intall it.
Again, thank you very much.
I think we will be in touch.

You can always install MyODBC on your local computer and keep ODBC connections to your MySQL database on the server and also locally.
