Migrate Sybase DB to MS SQL... datetime problem.


I have a Sybase server with my source data.

I have a MS SQL 2000 server for my destination.

Trying to migrate all the data from the Sybase instance over to the SQL instance... not really all the data, just the tables that have a rowcount above '0'. I don't care about PK/FK relationships, constraints, triggers or stored procs.

I came up with the following script, using the linked server features of SQL2000.

Code: declare tablecursor scroll cursor for select name from openquery(LINKEDSERV, 'select name from sysobjects where type= ''U'' and uid = 1 order by name') open tablecursor declare @tablename varchar(50) declare @sql nvarchar(800) fetch first from tablecursor into @tablename while @@fetch_status = 0 begin set @sql = N' IF (select * from openquery(LINKEDSERV, ''select count(*) from ' + @tablename + ''')) > 0 BEGIN select * into TargetDB.dbo.' + @tablename + N' from openquery(LINKEDSERV, ''select * from ' + @tablename + ''') END' -- select @sql exec sp_executesql @sql fetch next from tablecursor into @tablename end close tablecursor deallocate tablecursor But, about part way through I get an error.

Server: Msg 8114, Level 16, State 10, Line 3
Error converting data type DBTYPE_DBDATE to datetime.

Seems that implicit conversion is not working for the Sybase datetime datatype and the SQL2000 datetime datatype.

I don't want to write an import for each table... I have about 100 total tables to target.

Any ideas Can DTS help in this case, even though this source server is not an MS server I want the whole database, and I don't want to write a construct for each table.

Error querying against linked FoxPro db

I have an issue querying against a FoxPro database. If I do: Code: select * from foxpro...train I get: Error converting data type DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP to datetime. This caused by one column, duedate. Code: select cast(duedate as varchar(30)) from foxpro...train it gives the same error. So it seems some implicit casting is being done even before I get any data. Unfortunately of all the data in that table, that is the one column I can't drop. This data is from a legacy application (we don't have foxpro as far as I know) and I am trying to import it into a SQL database. Works fine except for a handfull of tables with these date issues.

Is it possible or maybe hard to migrate from Access2003 to SQL Server 2005 Express?

I run a webserver using Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0. The database I have used for a while is Access 2003. I have now read about the freeware SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. I therefore have some questions that I hope you can answer. Is it possible to migrate from Access 2003 to this freeware instead What would my main benefits be if I decide to move to the Express Edition instead (stability performance something else) I have never used and SQL Server version and therefore also wonder if it is very different from Access... Hope you can help me out with my questions...

create new db

Greetings, Using a server base database called Respond (fe) and Sql server 2000 as a (be), I was trying to create a new db. Instead of designing from scratch, I was thinking to copy an existing Respond db, delete existing data, and modify it to fit my new requirements. I'm new to sql server db and would like to know 1. How to delete data from the table (be). 2. How to perform an automatic backup daily (or may be every other day) and how to check if the backup is doing what it was suppose to do in sql server 2000. Thank you in advance, OCM

Odbc linked tables failed on insert

I have a tough problem. I have an access 2002 front end linked up to a SQL server 2005 express back end. The problem I am having is that one of my clients has been using this database for the last 3 years and now and all of a sudden I am getting this error: odbc linked tables failed on insert About 4 customers in 5000 are affected by this random behavior. This happens when you use the form to create a new record. But this does not happen when you open the tables directly. There you can add, edit or delete new records. the tables in the SQL database have time stamp and primary key fields. The tables that require unique id's have triggers creating them. I have researched this problem and the only thing I came up with is that it might be the SQL driver version 3.7, but I can't find a link to an update.

Can I detach existing SQL2000 dbs then attach in SQL2005?

Hi Guys, I have a SQL2000 database running in customer site for around 5 years. I have a lot of Stored Procedures, Views, and User Defined Functions in that database. I am new to SQL2005, but now I want to migrate to SQL2005 server. Can I just detach my database in SQL2000 then attach in SQL2005 If can, then after attached, will all the SP, Views, and User Defined Functions perform the same as in SQL2000 Will I have any disadvantage or effect in the long run if I detach and attach in this way

MS-SQL db connection problem

I work from home and now have to connect to the internet via a satallite ISP. I have tried to connect to various MS-SQL db's using my old settings (which worked fine) but I get a "general network error (pre login handshake())" From reading on other forums and this one it would seem that my ISP appear to have firewalled port 1433 which has stopped me connecting to the MS-SQL db's that controle websites that I maintain. Appart from changing my ISP or the location and hosting of the db's, Does anyone know of a solution or work round that will let me connect via enterprise manager to the db's I have tried pinging the MS-SQL server but it just times out so I'm guessing the problem is to do with port 1433 being blocked \t

Backing up the db to MY harddrive

s I have a... situation. My site is hosted at one of the local hosting companies, and all's good. They are giving me FTP services and an MSSQL server service. Now, ofcourse, I have access to that db, by username and pass, read write, whatever. But the bummer thing is... If I wanna backup my db, it's through them, and they are charging me for it (for sending me the backup file) When I access the db on my Management Studio, I can right-click and choose backup, but it only backs it up to their harddrive... Now, thing is I HAVE access to it, so I wanted to know if there is any way I can back the db to my computer... Maybe some script that reads the db and writes all it read (tables+content [thats almost all there is]) to a local db Plus, I wanted to know, if it's a reasonable thing for them to do, charge me for the backup
