Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking to SQL Server views, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Linking the SQL Server view objects allows…your Access database to retrieve…pre-processed query results…without having to transfer over…entire data tables to process locally.…You get the benefit of being able…to take a look at multiple configurations…of your data without all of the overhead.…Plus, you can create joins and use…the results just as you would any other…data table in Access.…Let's go ahead and see how they would work.…I'm in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio,…and I want to explore the Kinetico-ODBC…database that we've been working with…in this chapter.…Inside of there, you'll find a folder called Views,…and we've got two views stored in this database.…
The one I want to take a look at…is called TotalOrdersByState.…If you right click on it and choose…Select Top 1000 Rows,…you'll see what this query,…or this view, is returning.…We've got Total Orders here…and then state names.…So you can see how many orders happened…in each of our states in our database.…If you want to see how this view is constructed,…
Watch this course to learn how to leverage what you already know to take that next step. Adam Wilbert reviews the basics of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and introduces two workflows for migrating Access data: one using a simple export/import process and the other using the free SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA). He also shows how to convert Access to SQL data types, link Access to SQL data via an ODBC connection, and address special concerns for Access 2010 data.
