I have a database with SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS collation and another with Latin1_CS_AS collation. is it possible to transfer data between the two different databases through a custom built integration? and what are the effects of transferring data between databases with different collations?

    Assisted Solution

    SSIS (SQL Server Integration Services) will handle the data transfer easily.  The main problem with having different collations is not transferring data, it is trying to do direct comparisions of data.  (e.g. if you are working with cross database queries.)

    Accepted Solution

    quires are easy.
    it's easy to import them directly from one to the other just use the collate command.

    it will then translate one of your IDs into the other DB language.
    select * from db1.dbo.table1 left join db2.dbo.table2 on id1 = id2 collate  SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS
