Step 1 of 6. Select Conversion Mode
Specify how to convert SQL Server database into PostgreSQL format:
- Move to PostgreSQL server directly - use this approach to export
the contents of the source database into database on the target PostgreSQL server.
You need PostgreSQL server launched and also necessary privileges to write into
database on the target server. See Connect to PostgreSQL
Server section for related information.
- Export into script file - use this approach to perform deferred
conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program
stores the data into a local script file instead of moving it to PostgreSQL server
directly. The resulting file contains SQL statements to create all tables and
to fill them with the data. See Import
PostgreSQL script files article for related information.
