Re: Using Microsoft Access as a Front-end to MySQL

I’ve got my MySQL cgi application working great online. Now I’m trying to get to the data using MS Access 2000 as a frontend with the MySQL ODBC 5.1.5 Connector. All goes well with the linked tables, but before long, I get:



ODBC –call failed

[MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.0.51a-community]MySQL server has gone away (#2006)

The problem is the web host has a 15 second timeout. So, I want to connect, transfer data, and disconnect (without closing the database), then have the option to reconnect when needed. I've tried dropping all the linked tables and reconnecting them later, but I still get this message. The problem is clearly that Access is trying to maintain the connection even though there are no tables linked. Is there any way I can force Access to drop the connection when there are no tables linked (short of closing Access)?

thanks,

Brad Scott
