I am trying to import shape file data into a MySQL database using ogr2ogr. I
am running on a Windows Server 2003 Standard. When I try to run my
statement, I get this error: "MySQL driver does not support data source
creation."  I checked the dlls in the FWTools 1.0.5 bin directory and have
libmysql.dll there. I've googled, and searched through the forums, but
haven't found anything pertaining to this problem. Here's the actual
statement I'm trying to run: "ogr2ogr -f MySQL
MySQL:test,user=xxx,password=xxx,port=3306 D:\CountyPopulation\countPop.shp
-nln countypop -lco PRECISION=NO"


Please help!
