    i’m running cfmx on OSX. is there any way i can use those access databases in the tutorials? If not is there a way to convert them in to something i can use? like an “access to mySQL” widget?

  2. I don’t know of a way to do what you are suggesting. In the past, I have set up web services on a Windows box running CF which do the database queries for me and return the serialized result sets. I have also built plenty of postgresql databases by hand using an Access database as a blueprint so that I sould run apps on my Mac. Neither are simple or conveneint solutions, but they work.If you come up with a solution, let me know.

    Hi Christian,you’ve helped me a bunch of times with cfmx on osx, i was going to email you next about moving those access files to the mac.I found this link on google :http://www.convert-in.com/acc2sql.htmdon’t know how well it works but it may be worth a shot.

    not sure of this 100%, but could you export the Access database as a tab separated file than use import into MySQL using myPHPAdmin?

    I have done something similar to with a FileMaker to MySql conversion.

    I’ve actually used the Access to mysql when I was migrating a coldfusion app to jsp. Worked fine for me. It comes out as a tab seperated list.
