I am not sure if this is a database issue or an application issue, but my problem is this:
I have a cold fusion application that pulls out data from our Sybase database, and pushes it to a MS SQL database. The data pulled out from sybase is filtered on the date range entered by the users. Sometimes a user enters a date range that pulls out close to 2 million records from sybase, and the application dies (or odbc times out etc..) before it is able to push the data to MS SQL.
I was wondering if there is an alternate to achieve this......may be by writing a stored procedure in MS SQL server that can pull the data directly from Sybase. If it is possible, then how do I call such a procedure from cold fusion application and pass on the date range entered by a user??
Please let me know if I should post this question at MS SQL section.
Thanks in advance.
