Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Migrating queries, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Unlike the SQL Server Migration Assistant,…the Upsizing Wizard here in Access 2010,…didn't give us the option to do anything with our…database queries.…If the query that we want to move doesn't include…any custom functions then we can often just copy…the code out of the SQL view and paste it…into SQL Server in order to create a copy there…if it's needed.…Let me show you how to do that with the…Top 100 Customers query.…Let's go ahead and double click on it in the…navigation pane to run it…and we can see we get a CustomerID,…a First and LastName,…and then we have this column here…called Lifetime Sales, which is adding up…the total spent for each of our customers.…
And then finally, we get to see the State…that they're from.…If I want to see how this query was created,…we'll go over here to the Home tab,…we'll switch it to Design view and we'll see…that it's pulling information from the Customers table,…Orders, Products, and States and those are all…of the linked tables that are in SQL Server.…Here we can see that it is a Totals query,…
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.
