An alternative is to use RODBC. There are instructions on my page here:
Look in the MySQL section (obviously).

You may need to pester your admin guy to add the MySQL/ODBC connector. 
The instructions may not be quite up to date but hopefully you can find 
your way through. Our students generally manage to set it all up on 
their own computers.
