Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching the SQL database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- In order to have something to link to in Access,…let's run through a quick attachment process…to import a new example database…into our SQL Server instance.…Here inside of the chapter five folder…of our exercise files,…I've got a file here called KinetEco-ODBC…and it's an MDF file,…so this is a main database file here.…Then I also have the corresponding log file,…the LDF file that goes with it.…What I want to do is select both of these.…I'm just going to hold down the Shift key…and click on both of them,…and I'm going to right click and say Copy,…and then we need to put these in a location…that SQL Server can get to them.…
So, here, I'm going to go into my C drive…and then into Program Files,…and then I'm going to go down…into Microsoft SQL Server here,…then we'll go into the instance name.…So, this is the name of my instance,…SQL Express 2014.…We named it this when we installed SQL Server.…We'll go into that folder,…then into the MSSQL folder,…and then finally, we'll go into the data folder.…So, this is where SQL Server stores…
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.
