4. Choose the "MySQL driver" then "Finish"

5. Click the "Add data source name" and enter all the necessary information such as, username and password, name and server then click OK.

5. Open your Microsoft Access then click "File".

6. Click "Get External Data" then click "Link Tables"

7. A window will open, choose "ODBC Databases ()" and choose MySQL data source.
