Best way to convert an access database to a module
What would be the best way for me to convert an access database(all my yaers of notes for example, and other bibles in access, etc) into a sword module? I've had a look around at things, and saw nothing specific to access, but rather text files.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: Best way to convert an access database to a module
For an MS-Access file I have had the most success by "exporting" a table to .csv, .txt or .xml format. You can then easily read it with Perl or any decent editor (TextPad) and make changes that can be passed on to the utilities.

In His Grace,

When you not have Access, you can use: MDB-View
... to export the Access Databased to *.csv.

Or use MDB-tools (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mdbtools/) just to keep the open-source vibe flowing.
