Create Database (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

Use the Create Database page to define a new database for a destination file.

This page offers a subset of the available options for creating a new database. To view all the options, use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

To learn more about this wizard, see SQL Server Import and Export Wizard. To learn about the options for starting the wizard, and about the permissions required to run the wizard successfully, see Run the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard.

The purpose of the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard is to copy data from a source to a destination. The wizard can also create a destination database and destination tables for you. However, if you have to copy multiple databases or tables, or other kinds of database objects, you should use the Copy Database Wizard instead. For more information, see Use the Copy Database Wizard.
