MySQLi connection to Microsoft Access?

MySQLi connection to Microsoft Access?

I am developing an Intranet system for a client who already uses Microsoft Access for their client records.
Rather than re-invent the wheel with the data source, is it possible to create a MySQLi connection to the Access database and use the DW Server Behaviour panels to create recordsets etc as I do with connections to remote, hosted, MySQL databases?

Thank you.

Unfortunately our MySQLi extension can only be used with MySQL databases.

I've installed WAMP and I've had to use port 3333 for Apache because, prior to using 3333 it was using port 80 which was conflicting with other things.
When it was working, with port 80, I created MySQLi recordsets using the WebAssist wizard however since switching to port 3333 I'm getting the following error when I try to expand the recordset in the Bindings panel:

HTTP Error Code 404 File Not Found. Here are some possible reasons for the problem:

1) There is no testing server running on the server machine.
2) The testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://localhost/mysite/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php URL. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.

My site files are in C:\wamp\www\mysite\ and when I want to preview it in a browser I have to use http://localhost:3333/mysite/index.php so I'm assuming that this is some problem with the default DW settings which assume that you're using just http://localhost?

Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you.

EDIT

Sorry, in the Site Setup > Servers section I simply needed to add hhttp://localhost:3333/mysite/ as the Web URL as opposed to just http://localhost/mysite/

Sorted!
