Good Day Ladies/Gents

I was wondering how I would go about importing data from a data source (mozaic) in the same domain into my SQL 2008 instance?

I have set up the ODBC DNS and verified the successful connection. Now I wish to basically be able to pull data across to a SQL test DB, is this possible as I have been looking on Google and cant really find anything.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Sl33py

Have you tried selecting the data across using something like:
SELECT Field1, Field2, Etc
FROM OPENQUERY(MYLINKEDSERVER,'SELECT * FROM MyRemoteTable')

Another option might be to use SSIS and craete an update package ?!

Thanks very much for you idea's
I did not get far with creating a linked server, then attempting to insert the tables( we couldnt even view the data )

so right now I am trying to go the SSIS route, and it seems to be moving slowly.
