My Customer is using simply accounting and he wants to purchase my software that has its database on SQL Server.
Simply accounting data have the data in a file name ibdata1 and the log file are ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1.
An MySQL folder is also in the directory with .FRM, .MYD and MYI files

I need to import this data into a database on SQL Server database named "Cartouches-Escomptes"

Thank you

You basically need a import from MySQL server to SQL server.  There are tools for this, some tools you have to pay for but there are also free ones. You could use the SQL server's SSIS or import wizard but you would have to install the MySQL ODBC:

Well, this was not very useful, first the data are in a file named ibdata and do not have any db file into the MySQL folder. I was hoping to find a real solution to import Simply Accounting Data into SQL Server, I begin to Wonder if it is Worth to pay for a membership if we receive only 1 solution that does not work. Do someone know how to import data from ibdata to SQL Server...??

Hi,

Having been employed by a firm that migrated quite a few accounting systems to ones we supported, the better idea is to export balanced and the normally static (slowly changing dimensions to borrow a phrase from BI) into excel, and then import that via standard modules into the new system. Trying to bring back transactions always led to a messy cutover and system.

I have a few questions from your comment above:
What was in the article that you didn't agree with? What didn't happen?

I guess the best way to look at data in simply accounting is to connect using the ODBC driver, then, export to SQL.

Anyway that works!

Thanks for your help
