Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixing common migration errors, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- We just saw that we have one potential issue…with our migration process that we'll need…to address before moving forward.…In this case, the attachment data type…that's in the employee's file here…is being used to store employee photo…but is not a supported field in SQL server.…One way that we can address this issue…is to create a new table with a one-to-one…relationship with employees that stores just…the employee ID and the photo attachment.…Then, we'll leave that table in Access…and move the rest to SQL server.…Let's go ahead and make that change.…First, I'm going to right-click on this table…called Employees, and I'm going to copy it,…then I'll right-click again and press Paste…to make a copy of it.…
I'm going to make sure that we copy…both the structure and the data,…and I'm going to give it a name of EmployeePhotos.…Let's go ahead and say Ok,…and now we've got a duplicate of…the Employees table.…Let's go ahead and right-click on it,…and edit it in Design view.…Now, I want to delete all the fields…except for the EmployeeID and the Photo field.…
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.
