Loading Data from Microsoft SQL Server

This section describes how you can connect SQL Server with Exasol and then load data. The driver for SQL Server is pre-installed with Exasol. You can see the driver details in the EXAoperation (Configuration Software > JDBC Drivers tab).

Run Statement

The jTDS connection string format used to connect to SQL Server is as follows: 


Run the following statement to create a connection.

    TO 'jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://;databaseName=master;instance=v1'
    USER 'user'
    IDENTIFIED BY 'Password';

Run the following statement to test the connection.

select * from 
import from JDBC at JDBC_SQLSERVER
statement 'select ''Connection works'' '

To view details about data type mappings or to migrate data, see the SQL Server to Exasol migration script in our GitHub repository.

Load Data

You can use the IMPORT statement to load data using the connection you created above. IMPORT supports loading data from a table or a SQL statement.
