How to get data from MS Access or SAS/PC format into MySQL?


I want to get the Crosswalk data here into MySQL but the only data formats offered are MS Access and something they refer to as SAS/PC. The SAS/PC ones end with the file suffix sas7bdat.

I don't have MS Access or this other program. Can anyone suggest a way to get the data out of these files and into MySQL?

I can't speak from personal experience, but I have seen references to folks using mysqlimport, or a converter.

Personally, I'd see if I could find a friend with Access, and have them do an export of the database to a .CSV file, and import it from there.
