Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing the table design in SSMS, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that our products table has been…imported from a text file, we can finalize…the design to incorporate it into…the rest of our database here inside of SQL Server.…First, from your experience with Access, you probably…know that every table should have a primary key.…We didn't have the opportunity to define one…in the import process so let's do that now.…I'll go ahead and right click on the…products table that's inside of my…KinetEco-Import database and we'll choose design.…Then, in order to add the primary key,…I'll select this first column, the product ID column here,…and we'll add the primary key here.…
And then we'll go ahead and close it,…and we'll tell it we want to save some changes.…Now, I'm going to get those dialog box here…that says, "Saving changes is not permitted."…This dialog box warns me that saving changes…is not permitted because the changes that I've made…require the table to be deleted and then recreated.…To change this option, let's go ahead and press…the cancel button here, and we'll go ahead and say okay,…
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.
