I'm trying to migrate user data from a previous database into the new aspnet membership schema. Specifically, I want to take user data from one table (UserName, Email) and add those records into the new schema, which means creating the records in the aspnet_Users table and the aspnet_Membership table. I could do it one record at a time through ASP.Net configuration, but I have 9000+ accounts I want to move over. What would be the best way to get this done? Any ideas?

if you have access to the both database on the same server you can create a cursor in T-SQL and do it in batch whit management studio.

I don't know the database schema, but you can create a cursor like this:


DECLARE @USERNAME VARCHAR(1000)
DECLARE @EMAIL VARCHAR(1000)

DECLARE cur_User CURSOR
FOR 
SELECT 
	USERNAME
	, EMAIL
FROM 
	OLDDATABASE..user  -- put the real database and table name here


OPEN cur_User 


FETCH NEXT FROM cur_User INTO @USERNAME, @EMAIL

WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN 
	-- YOU NEED TO FOUND THE GOOD STORE PROCEDURE TO BE ABLE TO INSERT THE USER
	EXECUTE NEWDATABASE..USER_INS @USERNAME =  @USERNAME, @EMAIL = @EMAIL, @PASSWORD = 'TEST' 

	FETCH NEXT FROM cur_User INTO @USERNAME, @EMAIL
END

CLOSE cur_User
DEALLOCATE cur_User

Open in new window
