Export Data from SQL Server to Reckon through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Reckon

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

    When you are connecting to a local Reckon instance, you do not need to set any connection properties.

    Requests to Reckon are made through the Remote Connector. The Remote Connector runs on the same machine as Reckon and accepts connections through a lightweight, embedded Web server. The server supports SSL/TLS, enabling users to connect securely from remote machines.

    The first time you connect to your company file, you will need to authorize the Remote Connector with Reckon. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide.

Configure the Reckon Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Reckon 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 Customers. 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.
