ODBC. This is very handy when combined with exportsql, because it lets you

mysqldump and pipe it to
sqlconv.pl script. The script will parse through the
mysqldump output and will rearrange the fields so they can be
inserted into a new table. An example is when you want to create a new
table for a different site you are working on, but the table is just a
bit different (that is - fields in different order, etc.).
