MySQL into MSSQL DB Error > Converted datatypes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hy,

    the Problem / Error Message is:

    The given value of type Byte[] from the data source cannot be converted to type tinyint of the specified target column.

    The source DB is a mysql with Colum Data Type: Bit(1) and the Source is a MSSQL DB with Colum Data Type tinyint

    Has anybody an idea?

    Could you please try to use SQL Server Migration Assistant for MySQL tool to do the migration? Is it possible to use bit data type in SQL Server as the target column?
