SQL Server to Excel Migration.

Convert database from SQL, Azure to Excel

To simplify the process of data migration from a Microsoft SQL Server or Windows Azure SQL databases to Excel spreadsheets (.xls and .xlsx formats) and vice versa, our DBConvert for Excel and MSSQL is the perfect solution.

In most cases Excel data would be consolidated to a MS SQL Server database. But in some situations there would be a business need to distribute part of the data in opposite direction from MSSQL to Excel spreadsheets.

Before creating your destination Excel data, you can visualize it in the configurable tree-view and change it using a large number of customizable settings. The application gives you an opportunity to filter the MSSQL source data needing to be transferred.

You can move your data just in few easy steps. The user interface is very user-friendly, streamlined and very simple to use.

All data transfers can be scheduled such that database migrations will happen automatically.

Use DBConvert / DBSync software GUI application to configure parameters for starting a migration process.

In general, the following 4 steps are required to perform conversion or synchronization

  1. Choose Source Database.
  2. Choose Destination Database.
  3. Custoimzation and configuration.
  4. Execution.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps source/ target DB connection settings and other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\excel2mssqlPro\excel2mssqlPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.
