MS Access 2010 Templates

I have created a database from a template in MS Access 2010. I want to change the BE from the current Web Tables to MySQL.

I have split the database so I now have the Tables now as Local Tables in the BE database.

Could it be as simple to create the tables (or import them) in MySQL.

I ask this because it seems to simple, will all the functionality still be there, is there a better way of doing this, I wouldn't think I am the 1st person to want to do this.

Like chaau mentions, your question doesn't make a lot of sense.

Is this a WEB database? Access 2010 allows you to create a web database, which is hosted entirely on the web. You can't make that into a "non-web" database, but you can not publish it, which essentially makes it a local database. Of course, you'll have to have a host for the "web tables", which means you'd have to setup and run Sharepoint.

You could try creating a new, blank database and importing everything to that database. Once you did that, you could then create your database in MySQL, and then use the External Data - ODBC Database option to link your new FE to the database you created.
