Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up the database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- The Migration Wizard that's inside…of SQL Server Migration Assistant…has a handy option that will modify our Access database…to automatically link to the migrated tables in SQL Server.…But before we run through the Migration Wizard option,…it's important to make sure that we have a backup…of our original database,…in case things go awry.…Making a backup is really easy.…I've currently got the KinetEco - Migration Wizard file open…that's in the chapter four folder,…and in order to make a backup of this,…I'm just going to come up here to the File tab,…and we'll go down to Save As.…
From the Save Database As options,…I'm going to choose Back Up, down here at the bottom.…We'll go ahead and press the Save As button…and we'll notice that puts me…in the chapter four folder here…and the file name that it suggests…adds on today's date right here.…So, I can see that today is August 9th 2015,…and it appends that to the end of my file name.…Just go ahead and press the Save button.…Now we've got a file that's stored…in the exercise files folder…
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.
