Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Upsizing Wizard, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- With the preliminary steps taken care of…we can go ahead and try out the Upsizing Wizard.…Now, remember this is a feature…that's only available in Access 2010 and earlier.…So, right now I've got the KinetEco-Upsize file open,…from the chapter six file folder of your exercise files,…and I am, in fact, in Access 2010.…In order to use the Upsizing tool…I'll go to the Database Tools tab and press…the SQL Server button here in the Move Data group.…That'l start up the Upsizing Wizard…and we have two options here.…We can either use an existing database,…so if we've already created one…in SQL Server we can use it here,…or if we haven't created a database yet,…which we haven't, we'll choose the Create new database and…let the Upsizing Wizard handle the creation process for us.…
Incidentally, if you do choose Use existing database…and press next it's going to present you with…the same Select Data Source option to find…the file DSN or use the uiser or system DSN files…that we created in the last chapter.…In this case though I'm just going to press Cancel…
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.
