What is the encoding of your $MS SQL database? If Unicode, no recoding is
I recommand you installed pgAdmin2 (http://pgadmi.postgresql.org) and
followed the following steps:
1) Create a Unicode database.
2) Use the migration wizard to import $MS SQL Schema into PostgreSQL. It will
handle type conversion from $MS SQL Server <-> PostgreSQL.
Alternatively, you may use $MS SQL Server GUI to export schema. You will need
to adapt schema types and objects (convert money into float8, sequences,
etc...). This can be quite difficult in a large schema.
Use pgAdmin2 graphical interface to make sure all objects are imported :
keys, sequences, etc.. The best way is to run both GUIs at the same time to
create the missing objects manually.
3) Export the data from SQL Server into a text file using $MS SQL Server GUI.
Alternatively, you can attach files in Access2K and export them into a text
Recode the text file using : recode Latin1..u8 file_name.txt (assuming
Latin1 is the source encoding). If the $MS SQL database is already Unicode,
no recoding is required and you can use pgAdmin2 during the entire process.
4) Import the resulting data into PostgreSQL using pgAdmin2 or pgsql \Copy
