Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking new SQL tables from a production database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Just because our Access database is utilizing linked…SQL Server tables, doesn't mean that it won't continue…to grow as usual.…When new tables are added to Access,…they'll continue to operate as local tables…until they get migrated over to the server.…Let's take a look at how we can move a new table…from Access into SQL Server.…We'll start here in Access,…where I've got the KinetEco-Migration Wizard file open.…And I'm going to create a new table,…so go to the Create tab and jump into Table Design.…The table that I want to create is all…about our departments,…so our first field is going to be DepartmentID.…
The Data Type I'm going to leave as Short Text,…and I want this field to be the Primary Key,…so I will click this button up here on the ribbon.…The next field down is going to be the BuildingNumber,…and its Data Type is going to be a Number,…and I'll come down here into the Properties…and change the Field Size from long integer…to just a regular integer.…We're not going to have over 30,000 buildings…in our department, so that'll cover us there.…
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.
