Lesson 3: Running the Wizard to Export from ODBC to a Flat File

In this lesson, you run the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard to create the basic data transfer package. When you run the wizard, you make the following selections:

  • Specify the data source. You will use a SQL Server ODBC data source as the source and select rows in the table, Sales.SalesTerritory, in the AdventureWorks2008R2 database.

  • Specify the destination. You will write the data to a text file. You will configure the text file by using the wizard.

After you run the wizard, you then rename the package. You rename packages to help make the packages self-documenting.
