DATACOPY(FreeTDS)	   FreeTDS Reference Manual	     DATACOPY(FreeTDS)

NAME
     datacopy -- move table data between two servers

SYNOPSIS
     datacopy [-vdE] {-t | -a |	-c owner} [-b batchsize] [-p packetsize]
	      [-S server/username/password/database/table_or_view]
	      [-D server/username/password/database/table] [-T textsize]

DESCRIPTION
     datacopy is a utility distributed with FreeTDS.  datacopy will move table
     data from one server to another without the need for intermediate files.
     datacopy is much faster and more efficient	than is	freebcp	out/in.

     datacopy makes use	of the db-lib bcp API built into FreeTDS. This API is
     also available to application developers.

     datacopy can be used to migrate data between Sybase ASE and SQL Server or
     vice versa.

OPTIONS
     -t	     Truncate target table before loading data.

     -a	     Append data to target table.

     -c	owner
	     Create the	target table with the same schema as the source	table.
	     datacopy will submit a `CREATE TABLE' command on the target
	     server using the specified	owner in the command, e.g.  `CREATE
	     TABLE owner.table (...).'

     -b	batchsize
	     The number	of rows	per batch of data copied.  Each	batch of data
	     is	effectively 'committed'	to the database. The default is	1000.

     -p	packetsize
	     The number	of bytes, per network packet, sent to and from the
	     servers. Increased	packet size can	enhance	performance.

     -T	textsize
	     Specify size of TEXT/IMAGE	column from network.

     -v	     Produce verbose output, including diagnostic timings.

     -d	     Produce freetds TDSDUMP output. (Serious debug only!)

     -S	server/username/password/database/table_or_view
	     The connection information	for the	source server and the loca-
	     tion/name of the table (or	view) to be copied.  If	not specified,
	     datacopy prompts the user for the information.

     -D	server/username/password/database/table
	     The connection information	for the	destination server and the lo-
	     cation/name of the	target table.  If not specified, datacopy
	     prompts the user for the information.

     -E	     Keep identity values.
