DBConvert for MS SQL & MySQL is a database migration tool for conversion from MySQL databases to SQL Server and from SQL Server databases to MySQL servers.
DMSoft Technologies' DBConvert for MS SQL & MySQL converts your databases by configuring several options through either its wizard interface or command-line parameters.
It can also increase connectivity by bypassing restrictions on your servers. DBConvert will transfer the content of your source database into a local SQL dump file, and afterwards, you can send this dump file to your MySQL server directly. The destination database will be re-created with all the tables filled with the corresponding SQL or MySQL data.
DBConvert for MS SQL & MySQL also offers integrated data filters that allow users to retrieve only specific data for converted tables according to defined filtering criteria.
