Basically my question is in the title.

I desire to ask a question to get some help on moving data from one database to another, but I am not certain where the question should go.

Thank you.

My problem is that I have tried various approaches to get this to work, but sql scripts won't work and the export wizard didn't work. – James Black Sep 10 '09 at 16:23

Since your sql scripts aren't working that leads you into the realm of other programming solutions which should go on SO. SQL Server export/migration questions on SF are typically answered as "Script out the database objects and export your data via SSMS", or "Use a third part product like Red Gate's SQL Data Compare".

Thank you, guess I will ask my question now. :) – James Black Sep 10 '09 at 17:16

Depends if you're looking for more of a scripting answer or a wizard answer (no, I'm not knocking the wizards).

A scripting approach would go on SO, but a wizard approach (how to properly setup a database migration process through SQL Server Management Studio) best fits in SF.

Answer that, and you'll know where to post. Plus you can also search all three sites to see if the question has already been answered for you.

Initially strikes me as a SO question, I suspect you'll be dealing with sql scripts, which are programming related.

This is a fine line between administration and development, IMO, which is why I thought I would ask. – James Black Sep 10 '09 at 16:13
