What is the best approach for extracting data from a MySQL Database and importing it into MSSQL? 1) export to text file then import, 2) Set up ODBC conneciton to the MySQL server as a Connection Manager item - can you specify a query in a dataflow task that is correct for MySQL but won't run in MSSQL? or 3) Some other way?

Making use of Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant(SSMA) for MySQL is the best bet as the starting point IMO. I used SSMA for Oracle very recently with fruitful results.
You can find this tool for free from Microsoft site here:

Your option (2) is correct also. Whether the source query runs OK on SQL Server is not relevant if your connection is to MySQL.


Help us to help you. For better, quicker and more-focused answers to your questions, consider following the advice in this link.

If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

Please surround any code or links you post with the appropriate IFCode formatting tags. It helps readability a lot.

Alternatively, ConvertDB is able to automate migration. It connects to MS SQL / MySQL Servers located on WIN/Linux directly. Automatic views translation is possible.

This isn't a migration - at least after the initial pull. There's going to be a daily extract of records created the previous day in a MySQL-hosted system which are inserted into a MSSQL database.

Hi Dan,
I've done option 2 successfully in the past, also a 3 - create a linked server in MS SQL & query/import the data through that.

I found 3 a bit better (and gave more useful info for debugging), but then I'm happier in SSMS than SSIS.

Cheers
Gaz
