Running Data Import

EMS Data Import for SQL Server is a powerful program to import your data quickly from MS Excel, MS Access, DBF, TXT and CSV files to SQL Server tables.


Data Import for SQL Server provides you with an easy-to-use Wizard which guides you through all the steps of data import process: you can set import parameters, including source data formats for all the fields and destination data formats for the selected fields, commit options, number of records to skip, import mode, etc.
