Exporting or linking existing OOo Database to MySQL

Postby ggourde » Wed Dec 28, 2011 5:32 am

I'm sorry if this issue has already been addressed. I have created a database using OOo base. I now have downloaded WAMP and have set up a MySQL / phpADMIN account. Now I would like to have my database viewable/connected to MySQL. But the export icon is greyed out. What else can I try?

Try drag&drop between two instances of Base; your current database and another instance connected to MySQL.
Or...
Take a look at the 'Advanced database migration tools' listed here:

AOO 4.1.x; LO 4.2.x; Windows 7/8 64-bit
Warning: Avoid embedded databases --> Solution: Adopt a portable 'split database' folder
