SELECT MATCH(table1) AGAINST (table2) as Relevance FROM table

as i understood .. match is not available in access/sql. Is it possible to get this function in Access 2003?
i have Levenshtein in a vba function working in access.. but i want to compare it to the match function from mysql

correct.

you will have to use some "real" database engine like MySQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle etc which do support full-text indexing.

are you aware that you could use ms access as front-end, and keep the database in MySQL, and with pass-through queries use the MATCH() function?

the problem is still the same... MATCH in mysql is part of the sql language, compiled into mysql engine. if you create a vba function, it will be an "outside" function, not being able to use some kind of index (which is the main goal of the full-text index...)
