[ic] Using MyODBC to update MySQL tables

We're changing the way we update our products database. The old way was 
to upload a new products.txt and remove products.sql. The new way we're 
trying is using MyODBC to do updates on the products database directly. 
This is really helpful for us since we are syncing Interchange with a 
point-of-sale system, and updates are a lot smaller than sending the 
whole file each night.

I'm wondering if there could be any problems with using this method. 
Say the update fails halfway, is products going to be ruined?

Anyone have experience with this?
