Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the results in SQL Server Management Studio, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that the migration is complete,…let's take a look at what happened…inside of SQL server management studio.…I'm going to go ahead and expand the databases folder here,…and we'll find the Kinetico Migration Wizard database.…Now this one should be the one that we've copied…our data tables into from Access,…so if I expand the tables, sure enough, here we go.…I've got the Customers table,…Employees, Orders, Products and States.…If I right click on one of these tables,…and choose Select Top 1,000 Rows,…I'll expect to see some data.…And indeed, I do see that data.…

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.
