My boss had asked if there was a way to convert an ms access db to mysql.  Not 
having dealt with databases before I couldn't give a qualified answer.  So I 
am calling on all those db experts out there to ask a few questions.

1.	Is it as simple as exporting in some sort of delimitied file and importing 
into mysql?

2. 	Has anyone ever tried to do this?

3.	Were there any gotchas to look out for?

4.	Is msql relatively close to ms access in behaviour?

Thanks in advance for any and all input
