You could possibly do it in a single operation using MS Access if you
have an ODBC connection to each database.  If however the dataset is
large, I wouldn't recommend it.  I have a number of MySQL and PostgreSQL
dbs and I either dump sql and then import or use PHP scripts when moving
between the two.
