To store your Digita FileCabinet data on an SSE, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 server, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 server, or Microsoft SQL Server 2012 server, follow these steps.

  1. Create an SQL data location.
  2. Copy drawers from your current data location to the SQL data location.

    The conversion from the structured storage format to the database format occurs automatically during the copy process.

    Note: A similar conversion occurs when you copy data from data locations with the database format to data locations with the structured-storage format.
