Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the changes to Access, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- The Migration Assistant Wizard…had one tiny little check box that enabled…table linking back to Access.…That one option is easy to miss…but it makes the migration process much simpler.…Let's take a look at what happened…inside of our Access database after the migration.…I've currently got the KinetEco-MigrationWizard file open,…that's in our Chapter 4 folder of the Exercise Files,…and we can see it looks a little bit different…than the last time we saw it.…Over here in the Navigation Pane,…you could see that all of my tables here,…the Customers, Employees, Orders, Products and States,…all have the icon here that indicates…that they are linked to an external server.…
If I hover my mouse over it,…we'll get some details about the server.…We can see that they use an ODBC connection…and it's connected to the SQL Server…with the name of the server and the login credentials.…If I double-click on it, we can see that we get the data.…So, the data is coming from SQL Server,…and that it all seems to be working out just fine.…
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.
