Guys, with help here I wrote a SQL to DBF convertor sometime back.  Now I have need of writing in the other direction.

One of our clients wants to run on either MySQL or Sybase (the latter has a neat DBF supported system that can use DBF files up to 6 gig).  We have figured out how to do CursorAdaptors to connect to the SQL tables (DBF or SQL with a boolean IF statement), but do not want to do a table by table ground up creation of the SQL database.

What are your suggestions, or code, for making an SQL database out of a DBF database.
