First, set up a linked server.


Once this has been completed, you can simply eith do:

Select * into <newtable> from <mysqltable>            

Or you can create a project in SSIS and pull data and objects across that way.

Just to expand a bit on that the syntax is likely to look like: Select * into newtable from mysql_alias.mysqltable

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
