Performing Operation (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

Use the Performing Operation page to view the progress and the results of the import/export operation, and to interrupt the operation if necessary.

To learn more about this wizard, see SQL Server Import and Export Wizard. To learn about the options for starting the wizard, as well as 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.
