Export Data from SQL Server to Teradata through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Teradata

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

    To connect to Teradata, provide authentication information and specify the database server name.

    • User: Set this to the username of a Teradata user.
    • Password: Set this to the password of the Teradata user.
    • DataSource: Specify the Teradata server name, DBC Name, or TDPID.
    • Port: Specify the port the server is running on.
    • Database: Specify the database name. If not specified, the default database is used.

Configure the Teradata Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Teradata 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 NorthwindProducts. 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.
