I have a GIS feature class of lines in a file geodatabase that I want to export directly to SQL Server. I only have ArcMap 10.0 to view this file and I can't see how it is possible using that. Usually, I export to shapefile and then upload from there but this is over 2Gb so I want to do it directly.

I already have the database set up in SQL Server, I just want to export directly from ArcMap and create a new table in SQL.

Is this possible?

I have tried using the Feature Class to Feature Class tool, and create a new Database Connection. If I test the connection, it works fine, however when i save the new Database Connection it has a little red cross next to it and still doesn't work. Any ideas?

  • Can you please explain what exactly are you trying to achieve? I have a hard time understanding what is your problem. – Alex Tereshenkov Mar 15 '18 at 16:00

    ArcGIS 10.0 isn't going to connect to any database released this decade. Please Edit the question to specify the exact versions of all software (including service packs) – Vince Mar 15 '18 at 22:35

    Note that the answer to 99% of "Is this possible?" questions is "Of course, with a bit of work" (the remainder are "a lot of work" and "an awful lot of work"). – Vince Mar 16 '18 at 2:15
