Export Data from SQL Server to Dynamics NAV through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Dynamics NAV using the CData SSIS Tasks for Dynamics NAV.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for Dynamics NAV allows you to easily transfer Dynamics NAV data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Dynamics NAV.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Dynamics NAV Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into Dynamics NAV.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Dynamics NAV

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData DynamicsNAV Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Before you can connect, OData Services will need to be enabled on the server. Once OData Services are enabled, you will be able to query any Services that are published on the server.

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid Dynamics NAV user credentials. In addition, you will need to specify a URL to a valid Dynamics NAV server organization root and a ServerInstance. If there is not a Service Default Company for the server, you will need to set the Company as well.

Configure the Dynamics NAV Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the Dynamics NAV destination table and the action you want to perform on the Dynamics NAV data. In this article, you will insert Customer entities to Dynamics NAV.

  1. Double-click the Dynamics NAV destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select Customer. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
