If you’re working with data, you may often find yourself needing to import data from CSV files into a SQL Server database. This is a common task in many industries, including finance, healthcare, and marketing. Fortunately, Azure Data Studio provides an easy way to accomplish this task. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process of importing CSV data into SQL Server using Azure Data Studio.
Steps to Import CSV to SQL Server Using Azure Data Studio
Step 1: Connect to Your SQL Server
Before we can import any data, we need to connect to our SQL Server. Launch Azure Data Studio and open the “Connections” tab. Click on “New Connection” and enter the necessary information, such as the server name, authentication type, username, and password. Once you’ve entered this information, click “Connect” to connect to your server.
Step 2: Create a New Database
If you don’t already have a database to import your data into, you’ll need to create one. Right-click your Server pane and choose New Query. Type the following query. Change the database with your own name.
CREATE DATABASE MyDatabase;
Step 3. Install SQL Server Import extension
To be able to import CSV to SQL Server, we need an extension called SQL Server import. Search and install this extension first.
Step 4. Import CSV
Now we are ready to import the CSV file into SQL Server. Right-click the database and then click Import Wizard. Follow the import wizard as shown in the following video.
