SQL Server

Last updated on Mar 10, 2023

Hevo can load data from any of your Pipelines into a SQL Server database.

In this document, we will walk through the steps to add SQL Server as a Destination.

Destination Considerations

  • You must disable any foreign keys defined in the target tables. Foreign keys do not allow data to be loaded until the reference table has a corresponding key defined.

  • You can replicate data for only 1018 columns in a given SQL Server table. Read Limits on the Number of Columns.
