I am trying to use some ms access databases in R (version 
1.9.1 or 2.0 on a Debian system).  In searching the net for 
promising software to do this, I found mdbtools. Mdbtools 
claims the ability to convert schemas and tables in MS 
Access to MySQL and other databases.


I'm wondering if anyone in the R community has tried using 
this software to use MS-Access databases in R with a Linux 
system. If so, Were you successful? What kind of problems 
did you encounter?

Thank-you for your attention.
