SQL 2000 Server DTS Data Transformation Services - SQ2D


Data Transformation Services (DTS) is a set of tools that allow data to be modified and moved between a wide variety of databases. In the SQL Server 2000 DTS training course from ATS, database developers and administrators will learn how to use DTS with SQL Server. Expert instructor Leslie Koorhan demonstrates how to transfer data from SQL Server to other databases and the use of package components – tasks, steps and connections. At the conclusion of this course you will know how to incorporate DTS into any automated data transfer process.

Prerequisites: Understanding of relational databases required. Previous database design experience recommended. Data warehouse knowledge helpful.
