Export Data from SQL Server to Microsoft Exchange through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Microsoft Exchange using the CData SSIS Tasks for Microsoft Exchange.

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 Microsoft Exchange allows you to easily transfer Microsoft Exchange data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Microsoft Exchange.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Microsoft Exchange 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 Microsoft Exchange.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Microsoft Exchange

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 Exchange Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Specify the User and Password to connect to Exchange. Additionally, specify the address of the Exchange server you are connecting to and the Platform associated with the server.

Configure the Microsoft Exchange Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Microsoft Exchange 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 Contacts. 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.
