Hi! one could convert local access customized database to mysql and upload to some php compatible format. I was wondering whether anybody has tried out and could give me initial entry/ advanced experiences. Best Brandis
The MySql Migration too kit will do this for you without a problems - It will transfer data structures (Tables/fields) it will not convert your forms, macros, queries, reports, and does not create the PHP for you.
There are several utilities that do the whole thing at once (commercial and shareware) just google "Access forms to PHP conversion" you will be tickled pink to see the amount of choices you will have.
Those apps will do the data structure, and forms. The ones that work relatively well, are commercial but for this I will suggest to hire a PHP guru -- a person is more expensive but (If you choose the right person) much better than a program conversion.
As a bilingual technical company, SpanishTech have done our share of databases, we try to stay away from Access but a high percentage of our clients use access because of the simplicity of it. So we migrate a lot of Access to MySql / PHP.
Access is a good prototyping tool, but it chokes easily, and the most annoying thing is how the databases and scripting are not backwards compatible -- Ie: if you had access 2000 and you upgrade to 2003, brace for impact and prepare to have problems.
