Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard, part of SQL Server 2008 Essential Training.
It's a very common need that when creating a database we need to import some…data that exists somewhere else.…That could be in an Excel file, a CSV file, an Access database, even another…instance of SQL Server or a previous version of it, or we can do all of these…things using the SQL Server Import/Export Wizard.…Under my installed programs for SQL Server 2008 R2, I actually have this link,…Import and Export Data 32-bit and 64-bit, I have two versions.…Now the reason for that is that while my SQL Server instance is installed as…64-bit, some of the data sources that I might want to import from or export to aren't…64-bit so I need to talk to them using the 32-bit version, and basically if one…of them doesn't work try the other.…
So I've opened the wizard here.…It just gives me a greeting message that it will copy between databases,…spreadsheets, text files, and so on.…I'm going to click Next because I need to give it two pieces of information:…where am I copying from and where I'm copying to.…
