I have a 3rd party software that uses proprietary flat files as its database. Luckily tho, the software has an ODBC option where I can have MS Access to read it's data files. Is there a way to get a MySQL database synched with the software data via ODBC. I imagine that the MySQL would act as the ODBC client and connect to the software. I'm trying to get MySQL synchronized with the software so I can make the data available to other softwares. I would only need to sync a few tables, not all of them. But there are tens of thousands of records, so it's no small data. Has something like this been done? Any help would be appreciated.
