If you want to check it out, have attached the full code file - might be a 
bit messy/large - but, effectively, right at bottom, launch an instance of 
the class a2m, passing through arguments, and then from within __init__ call 
convertProcess function, which then initiates process, harvesting sort of 
rendition/version of structure out of MS access database file, makes call to 
convertSQL to generate structural SQL script, and save it to a file, which 
then calls convertData function to generate insert statements to populate 
database, and then that makes a call to convertExport, if you passed a 
command line argument in requesting mysql, and that's the current issue 
function - have stripped most of actual functionality out of it, since am 
just testing, so the first 16 lines of that function are what's relevant at 
moment - think shouldn't rely on any other self. objects/attributes as such 
either, unless step-through process is an issue.

And, tried cleaning it up a bit - replaced tab indentation character with 
double spaces, but, code might not look perfect/be perfectly clean as of
