Straight Import of a access 2003 databse into sql 2008 r2 is not working and errors on the third table import

Unhandled exception at 0x75b6b760 in DTSWizard.exe: 0xE0434352: 0xe0434352.


, as there are not many tables and this is a once off to start I have imported via excel.

however I need to start running a daily job to import to our sql 2008 r2 database, what do you recommend i am importing over a network.

Do you prefer a query to be done, instead of ssis jobs.
Has anyone experienced issues of automating an import of access 2003 database to sql 2008 r2.

Its a basic database and eventually it will be upgraded.
I just need to save it now on a daily basis

Are you validating the data before importing?

For example dates: Are you validating them to be sure they are within the limits of MS SQL Server?

... is not working and errors on the third table import

If you are  getting error there may be data issues.  For example Access (JET) can handle date that SQL Server can't. When importing this will cause errors.

The easiest way to get started with SSIS is, using Management Studio, right click on the database you want to import into, under Tasks, select Import data. This kicks off a wizard which is quite straight forward. At the end of the wizard, you have the option to save the package to the server or to a file. If you save it to a file, you can then create a job and set the step type to be Sql Server Integration Services Package. You can then configure the parts of your package and schedule the job as normal.
