Programatically import large amounts of data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Folks

    Is there an explanation of how to import large amounts of data into a Dynamics instance?  I have gigabytes of data which need to be imported, and doing so manually would take far too long indeed.  I can set up import mappings for it - I just need to be able to upload files and set which mapping for them to use, if possible.

    Thanks!

  • please explore built-in data import functionality in CRM.

    you could also try the ssis tool from kingswaysoft - it is free to run from BIDS.

  • The built-in data import functionality is far too limited for our usage - it's good for importing small amounts of data, but when you want to import 10GB+ of data it's practically useless.

    I'll take a look at the SSIS Integration Toolkit and see if it's up to scratch.

    Cheers!
