You can use ODBC to go from Access to MySQL. Get the MyODBC driver for Windows and setup your datasource so you can get to it via Access. You can do a direct export from Access to the MySQL database that way. There may be some differences, but I'm not sure of what all of them would be. Hope that helps some.
