Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an SSMA project, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that our default settings have been established…and we know what objects we want to migrate,…we can go ahead and create our first SSMA project.…When I start up SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access,…the first screen I see is this Migration Wizard.…And we're not going to use this right now,…so go ahead and press Close here.…Then I'm going to go create a new project.…So I'm going to press this icon here,…which is the blank page, it's a New Project icon.…Go ahead and click on that, and we get…to give our new project a name here.…I'm going to call this project KinetEco-SSMA.…
Then we get to specify where we want to…save this project file, and by default, it's going to go…into our Documents folder inside of our User folder,…and it's going to create a new folder called SSMAProjects,…which is a fine location for me.…Then we get to specify what database type…we're going to be migrating to.…In our case, we're migrating to a SQL Server 2014 database,…so we can go ahead and select that from the list.…And you can see we also have the versions…
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.
