Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying the Access objects to migrate, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Let's take a quick look at the Access Database…that we'll be migrating to SQL Server in order to make sure…that we have a good handle on what we want to move.…Currently, I've got the Kenetico-SSMA file open…from the Chapter Three folder of the exercise files.…During the migration, I want to move all of these…data tables that are in this database into SQL Server,…but we're only going to move some of…the queries and turn them into views.…The key difference between those that'll migrate…and the ones that'll stay is in the criteria that…they're using here inside of Access.…Let's go ahead and try running this query here…called "Customer Lifetime Sales".…
When I double click on it, you'll see…that it runs without any issues.…So this is one that we can convert…into a view in SQL Server.…Let's go ahead and close this down and try…running the next one called "Human Resources".…When I try and run this, I'll get this…"Enter Parameter Value" dialogue box.…And we can see that this particular query is requiring…some input that's coming from a form called…
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.
