Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing a SQL database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Before we start moving our Access databases…to SQL Server, I think it would be helpful if we continue…to explore the management studio environment and…start to take look at things that are in fact,…a little bit different from their Access counterparts.…We'll do that by adding in a new database to the server.…I've currently on the screen got open the Chapter 2…folder from the exercise files.…Throughout this course, we're going to be working with…a database for a company called Kinetico.…They make wind turbines and solar panels and…other alternative energy products.…I chose to use this database because I've used it in…several of my other Access 2013 courses, so there will be…another layer of familiarity if you've taken those courses.…
Now I have created a version in the SQL server format,…it's these two files here, the Kinetico-import.mdf file and…the Kinetico-import_log.ldf file.…This .mdf is the main database…file here and the .ldf file is the log.…Now if we go ahead and try and double-click on the .mdf file…
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.
