With samba, wine, and a local install of Office, sure. ODBC is a programming API, not a networking protocol, so you need direct access to the .mdb file. MS Access is the only thing that can read .mdb files, so that's why you need wine and a local Office install. If you really need remote access to the data, move the tables into a client-server database (mysql, postgres, etc) so you can get to them directly from Unix, and use linked tables in your .mdb file so Access itself will still work. -- Dan Nelson dnel...@allantgroup.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
