Hi Everyone-

I would like to port this file to a table is SQL server,  I have created the database for the file and have used various tools but with no success.

Could someone please direct me on how to get this converted and into SQL server.  Is it possible to have the SQL code for the creation during the conversion.  So I can modify the table constraints and table values.

I was using Full convert enterprise, but don't have the full version for the SQL code.

Why don't you use the import/export wizard built in SQL Server 2005?
see http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3580216 for a sample

Hi Mikainz-
 
I have used this, the values are imported but the columns are being entered as null by default.  When modify the values from null to NOT NULL and trying to set a primary key I get the following errot
''CHART OF ACCOUNTS$'' table
- Unable to modify table.  
Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'Description', table 'TEAMCHARTACCOUNTS.dbo.Tmp_'CHART OF ACCOUNTS$''; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
The statement has been terminated.

You can only set to not null if all existing rows have contnent in that field.
You can only build a primary key if each content in that field is unique.
Please check this against your data.

The table has 350 rows from the import that are trailing and are null.   A select and delete is erroring out.
 
A Problem occured attmepting to delete row 1429
The row values updated or deleted either do not make the row unique or they alter multiple rows (315)
