I have a website form that collects data in a php / mysql database. I have a form on my Joomla website that when registered on the site you can see the form. Thus when the form is filled the data is stored.
what I want to do is push that data automatically every night to a server that will collect that data and dump it to a location where a Microsoft Access database will collect it and allow us to run a report off of the combined data from the website's php/mysql and the Microsoft Access database we have information already compiled.
In other words I want the Access to collect the data and create and update a table (apended data) for a table in the Access database....
Is this possible if so how do you recommend I do this? Using what tools the freer the better or with what I already have. On a Windows Server 2008 and Microsoft Access or SQL Server 2008 with an 5.3.1 PHP MySQL database. thank you.
