Hello,
I posted this message to the Newbie list yesterday, without a response - I didn't realise there was a list for installation questions, so I am re-posting most of it here.

I have installed MySQL and MySQL OBDC driver to my PC (Windows 98). In the Environment tab of WinMySQLAdmin is the following:

MYOBDC
Not Found
Driver Version (blank)
Driver C\Windows\System\myobdc3.dll
API Level (blank)
Setup C\Windows\System\myobdc3.dll
SQL Level (blank)

By "(blank)" I mean there is no input (the help screen sample indicates that these fields should be filled).

The my.ini setup is:
[WinMySQLAdmin]
Server=C:/MYSQL/bin/mysqld-opt.exe
user=
password=

[mysqld]
basedir=C:/MYSQL
#bind-address=127.0.0.1
datadir=C:/MYSQL/data
#language=C:/MYSQL/share/your language directory
#slow query log#=
#tmpdir#=
#port=3306
#set-variable=key_buffer=16M

Is this OK, or am I required to install or configure something further, or re-configure something I've already done (such as in the Windows ODBC Data Source Administrator)? User and Password are empty because when installing the program I hit the spacebar once for each of these two fields, rather than type anything.
Also, can I make and set up a data table directly in MySQL (in the, or does it have to be done in code through PHP?
Basically all I really want to do is to convert an Access 97 table to MySQL format so that I can place it on my ISP's server, where visitors to my web site will be able to use a form to search for selected data (via PHP), and to display it on screen.
I'm finding all this pretty confusing at the moment.

Thanks,

Roger Stitson
