Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding records to linked tables, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Just because our tables are now stored in SQL Server,…doesn't mean that they're view only objects.…They'll continue to function just like…any other local table that you've…ever used inside of Access.…Adding new records, either directly…in the table or through a form, will happen…in exactly the same way as always.…To prove the point, let's go ahead…and create a basic data entry form…off of our linked orders table.…I'm going to go ahead and go to the Create tab,…and we'll create our form.…We'll start with the Wizard here,…so let's choose Form Wizard.…We're going to choose, from this drop down list,…the Orders Table, and then from there…I'm going to grab the OrderDate, the CustomerID,…the SalespersonID, the ProductID, and the Quantity.…
So the only field we're not selecting is the OrderID,…which is the automatically populated number for the order.…Once I have these fields selected, press Next.…We'll select the default layout, and the name of it…is going to be OrderEntry.…Finally, we're going to modify the form's design…
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.
