    Unanswered: DTS: Visual FoxPro to SQL Server

    Hi,

    Today was my first day to use DTS. I tried to transfer a Visual FoxPro Database to my SQL Server. I noticed that I am getting errors on the data that contains date fields. So, for testing purposes I transformed the Visual FoxPro fields that contained datefields into char fields. And this works, but obviously I cannot hunt around in a huge database looking for datefields in tables and change them manually. Plus, by changing to char fields I noticed that those fields that are empty are transformed as 1899-12-30.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Laura

    What's the source field datatype?

    nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."

    To make it as paifull as possible, I'd DTS the FP table into a staging table and go from there.
