Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is a very broad question to answer in simple terms. Need more details.

What are you migrating from? What system is in place now? And what systems are on the current system? What language? Etc.

    Migrating from what system? How do you plan on transferring your data? Will this be done internally or do you plan on using a contractor to do the migration ? How will your users  connect to the system? Can you shed a little more light on the project for us to give some more detailed answers?

    If you have Office loaded first and then load in System i Access for Windows and you choose to include the Excel Add-in then you can use Excel to upload the data to your IBM.  The most difficult item is creating a table for your Excel data to be imported into.  This will allow you to get data into the IBM i.

    The second tool is SQL using this to convert the data to CSV data type.  Excel can read and convert CSV files.  Finally SQL on the IBM i, well nothing more needs to be said.

    You did not mention if you plan on writing your own applications on the AS/400, I-Series or buying an external package? If you plan on buying a pre-written package check with the software vendor and see what step they recommend for importing data into their database formats.
