Copy data from one database to another using DataSets

I am looking for the most efficient and easy way to copy data from a MS SQL Server database into a mySQL database.

I am using VB.NET (VS 2008) and currently attempting it using DataSets, DataAdapters and Connection objects for the right type of database, but I'm getting a bit stuck.

Just to throw one more spanner in the works, the column and table names are different in both databases so I'll need to do some kind of mapping I guess.

Could someone point me towards or indicate a sample of doing this?

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have any solution for the non-matcing field names?

>> non-matcing field names

I don't think that there is a proper solution. You'll need to configure the right mappings

Yes, but that's the bit I'm not sure how to do.
