Sorry for the late reply
In my situation, I edit the moodle mySQL database directly using MS ACCESS via myODBC on my local PC.
Since the webhost doesnot allow to access via ODBC connection for security reason plus it will be slow anyway, I decided to edit the database at the local PC then dump at the local PC & import at the webhost. However, I've to DROP all tables then import the new database to get the latest update.
It will be nice to have the a utility that update automatically ( sync ) from the database at my local PC to the database at the webhost
