    Question Unanswered: transfer data from ms sql to MySQL

    Hi,

    I have MS SQL 2005 and I am using Visual Studio 2005.

    How do I transfer data from MSSQL to MySQL 5 using a SSIS project?

    Set up MySQL as a datasource.
    Set up MSSQL as a destination.
    Link the two with a data transform.

    Did you try learning about SSIS projects in Books Online before posting your question?
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    okay, my apologies, then

    but i swear that the original poster wanted to transfer data from MSSQL to MySQL 5

    that would make MSSQL the source and MySQL the destination, no?

    disclaimer: i haven't used SSIS, so maybe this 180° backwards terminology is normal

    Yes, I did, I also bought the microsoft book about "SSIS" and I also searched on others forums.

    My version not has the object "Data Transform"

    I use the objects "Data Flow" + "OLE DB Source" + "OLE DB Destination", but I don´t have MySQL OLE DB, I downloaded several, but none worked.

    I think to use "OLE DB for ODBC", but the connection manager not show the "OLE DB for ODBC", the "OLE DB for ODBC" is installed no Windows Server.

    You assume too much.
    I think he just made the same mistake that I did.

    I actually misread the whole thread...

    I understood the original question to be how to migrate from one MySQL machine to a different MySQL 5 machine. I then read r937's post and thought he was just making a joke about two occurances of MySQL.

    Sorry for my confusion... I read, misinterpreted, and further confused issues. I am running chronically short on sleep, spare time, etc. and that is apparently taking its toll on me.
