by right you should be able to access it via the CF Admin.
so I'm guessing you want to edit and do stuff right?
Most cf commands work for you to create table, drop table, alter table.
but you just cannot open it and mess with it like in Windows.

OPTION
Is this your test server can you install MySQL?
If so then why not use MySQL
It has a FREE (yes folks FREE fully working with an automated you just click NEXT>NEXT>NEXT interface) Access to MySQL convertor, creates the script to build the db for you and even makes toast!

ok ok it cannot make toast....heh

Access is not an option in the CF Admin.  I can't use MySQL because the program I have is not compatible with it.  Any other ideas?  Is it possible to use ODBC?  The only options I have in CF Admin is (MySQL, SQL Server, and Other)
