Zend Developer Zone:
Reading Access Databases with PHP and PECL
Nov 26, 2008 @ 13:26:12

The Zend Developer Zone has a new tutorial posted today from Vikram Vaswani about accessing a database with the help of the MDBTools PECL extension to read from a Microsoft Access datbase.

In this article, I'll introduce you to PHP's MDBTools extension, which provides an API to programmatically read data from Microsoft Access database files. If your project involves working with such files, extracting database records either for calculations or for conversion to other formats, you'll find this extension invaluable.
He steps through the installation of the extension (via the pecl command line tool) and some sample code that grabs the tables, all of their attributes and how to select the data out from them.

Import MS Access Data to MySQL 5
Nov 29, 2006 @ 13:41:05

In this new tutorial on PHPBuilder.com, Ken Lin demonstrates how to import some data from an MS Access database into the most recent version of MySQL (version 5).

In this article, I will discuss whether or not to migrate your MS Access data to MySQL. Then, I will cover about the considerations, planning, and preparations which should made before migrating your data.

He follows the (good) practice of plan first, shoot later when approaching the subject. He talks about the differences between the two systems, when to and not to make the import jump, and some steps to do to prepare things for the leap.

He choses the Navicat tool to make the transition, stepping through the process the import wizard will follow to make the push much easier than a manual import/export.
