Step 1 of 7. Select Conversion Mode

Specify how to convert SQL Server database into MySQL format. MS SQL to MySQL converter allows to export the source database into one of the following MySQL data storages:
  • Move to MySQL server directly - this option is designed to migrate SQL Server database right to MySQL server. Live instance of MySQL server is required along with necessary privileges to write into databas. See Connect to MySQL Server section below for more information.
  • Store into dump file - following this approach the program exports data from SQL Server database into a local MySQL script file. This file contains MySQL statements to create tables and to fill them with the data. See Import MySQL dump files article for information about how to import SQL scrip files to MySQL server.
