Moving from DB2 to MSSQL

Moving data from DB2 to Microsoft SQL-server (MSSQL) can involve some difficulties, because there has to be a transformation of datatypes from one RDBMS to other.

DB2 and MSSQL doesn’t contain the exact same data types and therefore a translation/conversion between the two RDBMS has to occur.

This article from Microsoft explain how the feature DB2ToSQL handles that conversion. And can also be used for inspiration for your own handling of transferring data between the to RDBMS’s.

The article can be found here: Project Settings (Type Mapping) (DB2ToSQL)
