I came from Italy.My english isn't very good...sorry.
I'd like to create a database in mysql using the data in my gramps database.
So I need to have a gramps textual report with only the data.I don't know python so...how can I do? Shall I just modify one existent report without knowledge of python? If yes, which report should I modify?
I've attached my E.R.A. scheme with tables and attributes.
Thank you for help,

I am not the right person to talk to about databases, so I don't understand
the details of what you want to do. However, if it's any help, you
may look at the data in the gramps database using a simple text editor.
The data is kept in a very self-explanatory XML format. By default it is
gzip-compressed, so you may use either gzip-aware viewer (zless data.gramps)
or uncompress the data and use any viewer/text-editor:
$ gunzip -c data.gramps > data.xml
$ less data.xml
and so on.
The xml is the text file, so you may either manually re-arrange data chunks
or write a script in whatever language you like (sed? perl? XSL?)
that operates on that xml and cuts bits and pieces that you are interested =
I'm afraid that I cannot be of more help without knowing exactly what you
want to do :-)
Hope this helps,
