The way I extracted my data was to right-click on each table and copy, and
then open a new spreadsheet and paste. Once in the spreadsheet you can then
save as CSV for easy importing into MYSQL.

Hello LibO experts,
and congratulations IanW!

It has been very interesting to follow this discussion getting Base
working with MySQL.
Unfortunately -- if I got it right - is Ian's OS a Linux (Ubuntu?)

Would it be possible to get the same proceeding described as a
step-by-step instruction for Windows7 (64bit)?
   in plain english  (no IT-jargong)
   starting from the very beginning defining the different programs
(versions) and components (ODBC, JDBC, JRE, etc when needed, included) to
be installed

Hi Pertti

Noted on your comments!! Unfortunately I'm running PCLinuxOS here and NOT
Windows!! (I'm sure you will be told to move by someone!!). So I don't
think it's any use me sending you the steps I went through. I did however
have the same situation here and over the past 8 months or so this was the
fourth attempt at getting it working.

In the past I gave up after several days of "thrashing" about and went
back to Base/HSQL until it crashed on me again and so on and so on....

This time I decided to hold out and work it through to the very end!!
There were many things to learn and lots of Hoops to jump through but we
got there in the end thanks to the aforementioned Members of the Forum
(thanks again Guys!!)

I'm sure somebody WILL pop up and try and help you out - just stay with
it, one step at a time, and you'll get there in the end.

VERY early days here but so far it looks good and I have a good feeling
about Base/MySQL. I'm stuck at the moment though trying to extract my data
from the old DB!!! Whatever I try it just crashes on me..... (Grrrrrrr).

The saga continues and I will be VERY glad to be shot of Base/HSQL!!!

All the best

Pretoria RSA.
