I am new in 'data-migration' and I think it is best seek out advice with the experts before I get my hands dirty.

Basically, I have a database which has a few thousands of rows and just a single table.

With the new schema which has a many to many relationship(many tables), I would need to migrate the data to my new schema.

Can I know if there is/are a free tool(s) out there to migrate the data ?

I will be using MYSQL server 8.0.14.

Running on Windows 10 OS.

Any opinions are most welcomed.

That's not a lot of data so whatever you choose, it'll be quick.

Since you are migrating between schemas, you need to express how the data should change. While I imagine that data warehouse tools can do this, it seems like overkill for your scenario. I recommend just writing a program to do it.
