Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing to upsize, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- By now you've seen several ways that you can combine…an Access front end with a SQL Server back end.…We're going to make a little shift here and talk about…one additional resource that's only available…if you're running Access 2010 or earlier.…I'm currently working in the Kineteco-Upsizing Database…that can be found in your Chapter 6 folder.…But as you might notice, I'm in the older version…of Access here: Access 2010.…If I switch to the Database Tools Tab, you'll notice…one additional option that's not available in 2013…and it's in the Move Data Section,…it's this SQL Server Button right here.…

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.
