Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing the Access database, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- The process of migrating a database…from Access to SQL Server can be made much simpler…when some basic preparations are made ahead of time.…Typically, you only want to attempt the migration…on a healthy and clean Access database.…Here's a few things to look into.…First, you'll want to remove group permissions.…SSMA is unable to migrate Access databases…that use workgroup permissions,…so these need to be removed…before the conversion process can proceed.…Once the database is migrated to SQL Server,…user accounts can be reestablished there,…to maintain the security of your data.…
Next, always have a backup.…The migration process makes changes…to both your Access database…and the SQL Server databases that you're migrating into.…Sometimes it takes a little trial and error…before you find the right combination of settings…or troubleshoot all of the migration errors…that can arise during the process.…Having a current backup will be essential…in order to allow you to work through these types of issues…as you move towards a successful and complete migration.…
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.
