I'm studying an introductory course in databases and one of the exercises is to work with MS-Access. However I'm using Linux at home and although I can use the computer classes at the university it is far from convenient (limited open time – my studying time is mostly nights).
So how can I use an Access file (
*.mdb) in Linux? By use I mean changing tables, writing queries and so on.
Are there tools to convert it to another database format (mysql, postgresql or even gadfly)?
Also what problems may I encounter?
