This nifty piece of software could be useful. Currently supports Access and Oracle. Perhaps this is an indication of where MySQL thinks the competition is: at the two extremes of the market, the big corporate back end and the desktop. I've just watched the demo of an Access migration, and it looks really smooth. I used to use MySQL-Front to migrate Access to MySQL, when MySQL-Front was freeware and before it turned commercial. Between these two states, development halted altogether, and the product went out of step with MySQL versions. I learned an important lesson about proprietary software when this happened, leaving me stuck with a version which wouldn't work with my version of MySQL: I vowed never to use proprietary software again for anything important.
