How can I access a MS-Access DB from a linux machine? I am doing a
website that will be hosted on Linux and has to access a Windows
machine with the MS-Access DB.
I read about the PythonWin extensions and ADO but it seems like it only
works on a windows machine... can I install this library on Linux?
I am new with python and a complete newbie with MS-Access.
I know it's a little OT but I have some MS-Access questions
according to this code:
>>> import win32com.client
>>> conn = win32com.client.Dispatch(r'ADODB.Connection')
>>> DSN = 'PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=C:/MyDB.mdb;'
The DB is a file... Is this the only way to use a MS-Access DB? Do I
have to run MS-Access as a background service to access a DB?
Appreciate any help
