Updated: August 22, 2016

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

If you double-click the row for an individual column on the Review Data Type Mapping page, the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard shows the Column Conversion Details dialog box. On this page you can review detailed conversion information for an individual column. This information includes the following items.

  • The column's data type at the source and the destination.
  • The conversion that the wizard will perform, if a conversion is required.
  • The data type mapping files that the wizard uses to determine the required data type conversion.

For more info about how the wizard maps data types from source columns to destination columns, and about how the wizard uses the data type mapping files, see How the Wizard maps data types from source to destination.

The following screen shot shows the Column Conversion Details dialog box of the Wizard after the user has double-clicked on a row on the Review Data Type Mapping page. To take another look at the Review Data Type Mapping page, see Review Data Type Mapping.
