I am interested in moving certain tables from Access to MySql with C#.  I just got the SDK off the net and am very new with this.  Ideally, the information would be grabbed on an hourly basis while the access program is in use.  Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try running through ODBC to connect to both systems and then just use SQL commands/datasets within the program to transfer the data.

This isn't the ideal situation but it is very flexible and I have used it somewhat successfully. If you ever move from access, or the file location changes you just point your ODBC connection to the new location. (No recompile required)

Are you looking to move the whole table or just the updated/changed records?

try loading the table you want to move in a DataSet through a (Ole/sql)DataAdapter bound to the access db and then, save that dataset through another dataadapter, bound to sql database

you can load tables into dataset using the 'fill' function of the dataadapter and save the dataset back in the database using 'update' fnc.

doryllis, I would probabally just move the changed records.
