I am trying to use the import export wizard to import data from an as400 into an sql data base. Copy data from one or more tables or views is grayed out. Why?
The only option it is giving me is:  Write a query to specify the data to transfer

that must be happening 'cause as400 has different databases called libraries and maybe in the odbc based link between mssql and as400 you can't or didn't specify from which database/library you're going to import data.

try explicitly specifying  the library on mssql.

Actually I found something in Help (SSIS) that says :
When you connect to an ODBC source by selecting .Net Framework Data Provider for Odbc, the provider is unable to enumerate the tables and views available at the source. Therefore the Copy data from one or more tables or view option is dimmed on the Specify Table Copy or Query page, and you must write a query to specify the data to transfer.
This is the 2005 version. I was able to do it on another server that has 2008. So I guess this is my answer.
