If desired, you could use this to perform the 'E' and 'L' parts of an ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process. The 'T' could then be performed by any other application or utility of your choice. This easiest way to do this, would be to have one copy of pyxmdb export the data to standard out, pipe the output to something like awk or sed, and then pipe that output to another copy of pyxmdb to import the data.
