Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking to ODBC databases, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Using the SQL server migration assistant,…we were able to move existing access…tables and queries into SQL server.…Another way to get the same benefit…is to create the objects in SQL server first,…and then link them back to the access frontend.…In order to do this, we will need to make use…of something called ODBC or an…Open Database Connectivity Interface.…In order to create an ODBC connection,…you'll use a tool that's built into the operating system.…If you're on Windows 7 or earlier,…it'll be called the ODBC Data Source Administrator.…
On Windows 8 and later, it'll simply say…ODBC Data Sources.…On 64-bit machines, you'll see both a…32-bit and a 64-bit version,…and you should just choose the version…that matches your installation of SQL server.…You can find the tool through the Control Panel,…and it'll run through a simple wizard…to create and verify a connection to a database.…Once you're done, the database will be…made available as a data source to…any other program that comes looking for it…through the use of a data source name…
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.
