    Red face Unanswered: Importing a Lotus Notes database to SQL Server

    Can SQL Server 2000 import a Lotus Notes Domino database? If so, how do I go about this? I have the .nsf file from Lotus, but will I also need a Domino server up and running? Are there any third party tools to help? Any help would be appreciated!
    Thank you!

    Yeah, you can do that. I've used the following two applications, and they're work pretty well: Notrix, Replic-Action.

    Will the import/export wizard within SQL Server be ale to handle the conversion or do you recommend the third party software? Thank you!

    From what I remember, it uses a odbc connection, but it's been awhile since I've used it.

    Give the fact that a Lotus Notes (and I use this term looooosley) Database is usually a mess of different Forms (Views) that tie diffenent documents together...is painful.

    You need a migration stategy (how to cut over) We use Notrix, Notespump...but it's usually to get data to Notes...not the other way around.

    If you're going to decommision a notes app (loooooosley) set up an export and build staging tables in sql server...

    Ther'es going to be a lot of data cleansing...in my experience...

    CONSTRAINT? Whats a constraint?
