Hi @premalatha_s


Yes to migrate the data from magento 1 to magento 2 - Magento itself have created a tool called - Data Migration Tool.


Which is useful for migrating data from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

You can also download tool from github -


Note : Migration tool have specific Magento Version required for Magento 1 like it is work with  Magento 1 version 1.6x to 1.9x(Latest version) - So make sure you upgrade your magento 1 version at least to 1.6x to use data migration too.

Hello @premalatha_s


you need at least Magento 1.6.* to upgrade to magento 2 version.


you can do like this

take the current db 

install fresh Magento 1.9.* and configure that db with that ( it will upgrade your db to latest Magento 1 version)

After did that you need to Magento 2 migration tool for migrating to Magento 2.


Hope it will help you.
