    I installed the MySQL driver, configured the DNS to connect to my server. I keep getting this error message:
    ODBC -- call failed
    [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager (#0)
    Can anyone guide me into the steps needed to
    export a table from Access to MySQL Database.
    Thank You.

    If you just need to export occasionally, it's not worth the trouble setting up ODBC. Just export from Access as CSV or tab-delimited and import into MySQL. It takes a bit of reading to do it the first time, but that's what documentation is for.

    A way to make it a bit easier is (if you have PHP installed) go to www.phpwizard.net and download phpMyAdmin, which is a web-based front end for MySQL and facilitates importing and exporting, among other things.
