How big is big? I do the same from Access into msql. I have a perl
script which runs on my NT box to extract the data I need from the
various tables in Access and then it creates new tables with the data
to import into msql (I use the same format as a dump produces).
Works like a charm. Only problem is that it takes about 20 minutes to
do the import -- and all the time it is echoing back each insert.
mysql doesn't do this (and I don't know how to turn it off in msql)..
But I digress.
How do you export from access and then import into mysql? Do you
check the data first? I make sure that each field contains just what
it should (in the perl script of course).
Might is not Right. But there is a lot of Might knocking
about in this world, and something has to be done about it.
