An ADO Based Data Copying Utility

Click here for larger image

Environment: VC6 MFC and needs MDAC if not already available [eg VC6 SP4, NT4 SP3, winCE 2.0]

This is a simple utility that helps in copying data from one data source to another. I wrote this because I could not find any other utility for this surprisingly mundane operation. It can certainly do with improvements in the validations and the UI.

The GUI uses the property list control by Matt Gullett available here on CodeGuru.

To use the application just enter the DSN name for the source and target database, enter the tables names, login and passwords. Choose the field mapping and hit copy.

All the best... In case you can think of doing any improvements or addition of features... please do go ahead...
