Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the data source, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Creating a DSN file will allow us to store the details…about how to connect to our SQL Server database…in a way that we can refer to…from other database management systems such as Access.…We'll do this using the the ODBC Data Source Administrator…which is a tool that's built into Windows.…In order to get to it, we need to go through…the Control Panel.…Previously, we have seen that we can…right-click on the Start menu,…and choose Control Panel from there.…Let me go ahead and show you another way…we can get to the Control Panel.…If you have a Windows Explorer window open, like I do here,…just click on This PC, over here on the left,…and, when you do, you'll get a new tab up here,…at the top, called Computer.…

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.
