Transferring data to SQL Server 2000

Transferring data to SQL Server 2000

Transferring data to SQL Server 2000

I have an Informix 9.3 database and need to output some of the data in xml. As this does not appear possible via Informix I want to automatically transfer the data from Informix to SQL Server where I can then output it to xml.

Any ideas to do this?


RE: Transferring data to SQL Server 2000


In the early 90's using Window's 3.1 I used a third-part product called datajunction to move between Oracle, Informix, Sybase, and several other products.  

I haven't dealt with them in years, but you might want to check them out.  http://www.datajunction.com



RE: Transferring data to SQL Server 2000

In SQL server there is a Data Transformation service, In essence it is a export and import utility. You can even schedule it to run regularly.

Install the Informix CLI client and you should have an ODBC driver for Informix.

Now in the SQL Server DTS (enterprise manager), You can create a package that "SELECT"s from the Informix server and the puts it in the SQL server.

RE: Transferring data to SQL Server 2000

Is it possible to call the DTS? The reason I ask this is that the scenario I have means that the data in SQL Server does not need to be up-to-date as it will not be used for reporting, but when someone clicks on a button within a web page I would like to call the DTS so that it copied the data from Informix to SQL Server.
