loading data straight into SDE from a shp file (ArcGIS 10.0)

Hi guys,

I have a shapefile that I want to load into an sde. feature class. The schema of the tables is slightly different. I know you can achieve this with append under the data-management tools, but awhile ago I vaguely remember being able to 'load' the shp file into the sde. in 10.0 and then being able to manually pick and choose which table files you wanted to bring across and correspond with the feature class fields within the sde.

Does anyone know this alternative process? It wasnt particularly complicated at all, I just cant remember how we did it for the life of me!

In catalog right click the target feature class and select load
