What are system requirements for Excel-to-MySQL?

MS Excel to MySQL converter does not require ODBC. It requires Data Access Objects (DAO) library produced by Microsoft for reading MS Excel files. Some versions of MS Excel/Office do not include necessary DLLs, so it may be required to install Microsoft Access Runtime:

For both 32- or 64-bit version of OS and MS Office it is necessary to download and install 32-bit version of Access Runtime (the corresponding file name ends with "x86_en-us.exe").

If there is no direct access to MySQL server, the program can migrate MS Excel data into a local MySQL script file. See Import MySQL dump files article for related information.
