Can PGNB support view script export?

Postby Jimmy Huang » Fri Jul 02, 2010 5:39 am

Hello, I am newbie to use PGNB, I want to export my mssql2008 database to postgresql database, I export the general tables data successfully, and when I tried to export views, the PGNB just created real tables for each view. Is it possible to export views as sql script rather than real tables?
I am using the trail version 1.3.

Currently it is not supported, but potentially the support can be added. How many views do you want to export? Would it be hard to do manually?

If you are going to do the database transformation regularly, then consider creating SSIS package in BIDS. The package can perform the regular tables transformation in Data Flows, and views creation can be done as SQL Tasks.
