Step 1 of 7. Select Conversion Mode
Specify how Access to MySQL conversion tool should manage the migration
process. The converter provides two options of exporting MS Access database
- Move to MySQL server directly - migrate Microsoft Access database
to the target server directly. MySQL server must be launched and grant the user
sufficient privileges to write into database. See Connect
to MySQL Server article for related information.
- Store into dump file - following this way, the program exports
the MS Access database into a local SQL script file instead of moving it
to MySQL server directly. The script file contains SQL statements to
create all tables (along with indexes and constraints) and to fill them
with the data. See Import MySQL dump
files article for related information.
