Hi,

From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/210073 "A Schema.ini file contains the specifics on how data is formatted in a particular text file and is used by the Text ISAM driver to read and manipulate data."

Now - this only relates to microsoft,

To create the table you may be able to do it with odbc however I would think that the easiest way if you are using access is to create a link to this text file- as a table - run a create table query that copies over the data and structure to an access db table - then use the migration wizard with access to get it into mysql.

otherwise you would have to just create it by hand in mysql.  Mysql does not recognise schema.ini files
