Hi

When I use SQL Server Import and Export Wizard from SSMS to export a table to excel format file, do I have Data Transfer Out cost charges in my Azure Subscription?

Since Azure charges for Data Transfer Out costs, I´d like to know if I will incur in such charges if I export an Azure SQL Database in Excel format?

SSMS is installed in my desktop and data won´t move between regions.

Thanks

Mirella

    @Mirella Pellizzon Petruci Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forums.

    The cost associated with Outbound Data Transfer (Internet Egress) is minimal.
    Unless you are transferring Terabytes of data it is not going to be significant.

    Internet Egress of 5GB/Month is free per subscription.
    Beyond that, the charges are $0.08 per GB (in North America and Europe).
    For a complete list of charges by region, please check the Internet Egress section on this page.
