[protege-discussion] Saving a project into an Access database

Yes, you can save in an Access database. Please read the Microsoft 
Access documentation about how to create a datasource that is linked to 
as Access database table. It is pretty easy, you have to go to Control 
Panel -> Administrative Tools -> ODBC Datasources. You'll find more 
information on the internet about these steps.

After you defined a datasource, you just have to follow all the steps 
from the webpage that you have mentioned in your email. You'll have to 
replace the "ProtegeDB" from


with the name of the datasource that you created.

However! I do not recommend that you use Microsoft Access and the JDBC 
ODBC driver. It has a very slow performance.

I recommend that you try out some other open source and free database 
engines (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc.)
