Hi,

I need to extract all the data from a form to SQL server. What would be the easiest way of doing this?
There are some clob field data types, will they be a problem?

thanks

If You mean from HTML form than You should make a dynamic script (e.g. ASP.NET, PHP) which gets data from Your form (You can add a button to that form to send it's data to the new script) and puts it to SQL Server with SQL code like that:
INSERT INTO [table_name]([column1], [column2], [column...]) VALUES([value1], [value2], [value...])

value1, 2 and another You pass from the source form.
If there is CLOB datatype use SQL "BINARY" data type.

ok i have a notes database. And i am busy with data migration from notes into SQL server. I have been battling to get the data out of the nsf file. I am using the Notes ODBC connection and just battling to get all the data into sql and it looks like its the clob fileds that are giving me hassels. I have also tried linking to the table thru access and then using SELECT INTO statements but get errors.
there are about 144 fields in the notes database.

hope this helps

If You have ODBC connection already, start SQL Server Management Studio and there is Import option. Try it out.
If that won't help You may also try to use DTS package.

Ah, yes, thanks.

If I remember correctly, the ODBC-connection doesn't handle everything. You might try a different way: there's NotesSQL, if you want to access Notes the SQL-way.

I agree with :sjef that you will probably need a specialized tool to do this automatically, or write your own custom code to do it via a conversion DB of some type.



I hope this helps !
