mysql dump

This is probably a silly question but here goes...

When you dump a mysql table or db, is that dump file compatible with Micro$oft SQL?, ie, can I give it to someone running ms-sql and they can import it?

If not, what else can I do to give them table contents?

yes u can import all the SQL if u havent used any specific feature for MySQL..

you can also dump the data in CSV format and can import it in MS SQL...

Hope this helps..

Ya when ever you dump as mysql it gives you a txt file you can directly import the file using the MSSQL import.
