Using SQL to MySQL Converter
In the first step you are asked to supply the connection settings of the Microsoft SQL Database to convert. If your SQL database requires you to log in you can specify a user name and password.
The destination database and MySQL server connection settings are specified as shown below. You will have the choice of placing the result in a dump file instead of transferring it directly to another MySQL database.
You can specify exactly which tables you want to transfer to the destination database. Just check the box in front of each table name you want to transfer and click next. Select tables to convert (ctrl/shift click).
Check conversion options accordly (create schema, copy data, etc. Additional transfer options can be set in the dialog shown below. Here you can specify if you want to transfer the indexes of the SQL database to MySQL. You can also select not to transfer any records. This will only create the tables in the destination table and leave them empty.
In both SQL and MySQL fields can have default values. When creating the tables in MySQL the program can preserve the default values specified in the SQL field definition. Also auto number properties of a field can be transferred if you check the Auto number properties box.
Press Convert button to start convertion process. The transfer will now run until all the selected tables are transferred. When the transfer is done you will see a small report telling you how much data was transferred.
When conversion is finished, apply constraints and indexes (if any).
The settings of the wizard can be saved in a .ini file.
