MS Access is a front-end as well as a database.  Think of MySQL as more
like MSSQL Server or Oracle -- just the database component.  You don't
use SQL server to build an interface; you do that in Access and link
tables to MSSQL.  Same thing with MySQL.  You build the interface in MS
Access, Delphi, VB, C, Perl, whatever.
