DTS & MYSQL

Hello,
Is there any way of using a MYSQL data source and then import that data into MSSQL via a DTS package.

I've tried to configure DTS to a MYSQL source - but it won't let me select a particular source.
At the moment I have a linked server from MSSQL to MYSQL so that I can see the various dataoutputs from MYSQL.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx

Steve

not too sure but can you create an ODBC connection to MySQL and then create a Connection in DTS and use this ODBC for connection?
you said you have MYSQL source as a linked server, you can always reference data from this link as well, as
select * from [mysqllink]..[tablename]

I've already configured an ODBC connection - and part of the problem is that on yhe MYSQL box there are several data outputs but DTS won't allow me to see them?

Thanx

try using "other(ODBC Data Source)" as the data source for the MYSQL server connection

yep under connection on DTS design wizard use option number 11,
have you tried other approach also go and create a DB connection to the server where you have MYSQL as linked server and then select "Execute SQL Task" based on this connection and do following to see if you can connect to MySQL from DTS using linked server
select * from [mysqllink]..[tablename]

You need to create the ODBC data source on the server that is running the DTS package. It sounds like you have created an ODBC connection on the MySQL Server. Are you also running the DTS on the MySQL Server?

If you are running the DTS on a different server then you need to install the MySQL client libraries on that server. That will allow you to create the ODBC entry on that server.
