This video covers the process of moving data from MySQL to SQL Server 2008 once the database structure has been migrated.  :http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ssma/archive/2010/10/14/mysql-to-sql-server-2008-migration-workshop-video.aspx

GO here :


Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) is a toolkit that dramatically cuts the effort, cost, and risk of migrating from MySQL to SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Azure.

See http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/migrate-mysql-to-mssql.aspx. The idea is to add your MySQL database as a linked server in SQL Server via the MySQL ODBC driver. Then you can perform any operations you like on the MySQL database via SSMS, including copying data into SQL Server.

Congrats on moving up in the RDBMS world!
