Microsoft SQL Server has an import and export wizard that assists you in copying Navision data from one database to another. This import and export wizard is available in any version of SQL Server, and it lets you copy tables, data, functions and other database objects. This is beneficial when you want to move your Navision data to a faster server for better querying performance.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the Windows "Start" button and select "All Programs." Click "SQL Server" and select "SQL Server Management Studio" to open the database configuration software.

  2. 2

    Right-click the database server name and select "All Tasks." Click "Export Data" to start the wizard. Click "Next" on the first window to move to the configuration set-up.

  3. 3

    Click "Next" in the "Data Source" window. The wizard automatically places the current SQL Server information in the text boxes for you. In the next window, type the name of the target database where you want to send the Navision information. Click "Next."

  4. 4

    Select the first option labelled "Table(s) and view(s) from the source database." Click "Next." The next window shows all the available Navision tables. Click the "Select All" option to choose all of the tables and click "Next."

  5. 5

    Click "Next" until you reach the final window. Click "Finish" to start copying the data. It takes several minutes to copy all of the data, depending on the size of your tables.
