Converting Access 2003 Database to mySQL

Mr_Fulano asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi, I have an MS Access 2003 Database complete with Tables, Relationships, Data, etc and I would like to convert it to mySQL format (open-source version). I want to do this because I believe that mySQL will be a better platform for future growth and it will be accessible from both PC and MAC platforms.

Is there a simple way of doing this, or am I going to have to recreate the entire database in mySQL from scratch and then somehow transfer the records?

Thanks for your help,
