Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the empty SQL Server database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- In order to use the Migration Assistant tool,…you'll need an empty database on your SQL server…instance that we can copy files into.…I've returned back into Management Studio,…and we can create an empty database by…coming over here to the Object Explorer.…I'll expand my Databases folder, here,…and then I'll right click on it and choose New Database.…In order to keep this database separate from…the ones we've used previously,…I'm gonna call this one KinetEco-SSMA, as the database name.…That'll indicate to me later on that this is the database…that we're using for the Migration Assistant.…
Let's go ahead and press Okay at the bottom of…the screen to create that new database,…and we'll see it pop up over here in the Object Explorer.…Now we have a location where the Migration Assistant…can copy files to, and we're one step closer to…being able to migrate our data tables from Access.…
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.
