Have you ever try to do it directly from DBF to MySQL ???

I disagree with you that it is faster. My professional experience has been that MySQL is almost 400x faster than SQL Server.

Also, SQL Server is not Free Software, and as such, I will never use it in a personal setting.

It is faster than MySQL, has a much better implementation of stored procedures and a much improved GUI.

LIMIT on MySQL allows you to specify 2 values - the start limit and end limit. So you could break your query into parts.

select * from table limit 1 to 5000
select * from table limit 5001 to 10000
select * from table limit 10001 to 15000

etc

Also, it seems to be slower than MySQL. Although speed isn't the only concern (stability and data integrity too), it is a major one. Finally, it is licensed under the BSD license where MySQL is under the GPL. I'm a GPL guy myself. 🙂
