Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an assessment report, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- I'm going to continue working with the SSMA project…that we started in the last movie,…but before we run through the migration process,…it'll be nice to know if we're going to have…a successful migration or not.…We can run a migration report which will analyze our tables…and queries, and let us know of any potential issues…before we begin the process.…In order to do that, what I'm going to do…is come up here in my Access Metadata Explorer,…and I'm going to click on…the KinetEco-SSMA database file here.…Now, if I wanted to run the report…against just a single object, I can select for instance,…just the Tables here, or I can select a specific table,…and just see a report for that.…
In this case, I want the report to cover the entire database…so I'll go up here, and select KinetEco-SSMA,…and then on the toolbar, I'll come over here…and press the Create Report button.…After a moment of processing,…we'll get this Migration Assistant report here,…and it indicates that we have just one error…that we need to address.…
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.
