What comes to mind first is letting them use their Access to access the
MySQL tables directly through the MyODBC capabilities.  It works pretty
well, but will take some setup.

This may prove to be the best way to "copy" an Access accessed MySQL toa
native Access database.

The only thing I can think of PHP helping you out here is by generating a
good delimited file available for download which Access or Excel should
be able to swallow whole.
