D Contributed Programs

Many users of MySQL have contributed very useful support tools and add-ons.

A list of what is available at http://www.mysql.com/Downloads/Contrib/ (or any mirror) is shown below. If you want to build MySQL support for the Perl DBI/DBD interface, you should fetch the Data-Dumper, DBI, and Msql-Mysql-modules files and install them. See section M.2 Perl Installation Comments.

  • exportsql.txt A script that is similar to access_to_mysql.txt, except that this one is fully configurable, has better type conversion (including detection of TIMESTAMP fields), provides warnings and suggestions while converting, quotes all special characters in text and binary data, and so on. It will also convert to mSQL v1 and v2, and is free of charge for anyone. See http://www.cynergi.net/exportsql/ for the latest version. By Pedro Freire, support@cynergi.net. NOTE: Doesn't work with Access2!
  • access_to_mysql.txt Paste this function into an Access module of a database that has the tables you want to export. See also exportsql. By Brian Andrews. NOTE: Doesn't work with Access2!
  • importsql.txt A script that does the exact reverse of exportsql.txt. That is, it imports data from MySQL into an Access database via ODBC. This is very handy when combined with exportsql, because it lets you use Access for all DB design and administration, and synchronize with your actual MySQL server either way. Free of charge. See http://www.netdive.com/freebies/importsql/ for any updates. Created by Laurent Bossavit of NetDIVE. NOTE: Doesn't work with Access2!

An example is when you want to create a new table for a different site you are working on, but the table is just a bit different (that is - fields in different order, etc.). By Steve Shreeve.
