Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Relinking tables after structural changes, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that our tables are being stored in SQL Server…instead of Access, you need to be aware of how changes…to the data and structure of the table are being handled.…Let's go ahead and review the Customer's table…that's inside of the KinetEco-MigrationWizard database.…I'll go ahead and double click on it to open it up…and what I want to do is add in a new record…so I'll come down here to the toolbar at the bottom…and I'll press this arrow icon…with the little starburst at the end.…Now, I'm going to enter in a new customer…and this first column is the identity field inside…of SQL Server so I can't type in a number.…
So I'll skip that field but I'll come over here…to first name and I'll just type in my name, Adam,…and last name is Wilbert.…I'll go ahead and press the pencil icon over here…to save that record and you'll see that it gets…the identity field gets populated to 3,000…which is the next number in the sequence.…So we've added in a new record to our table.…Let's take a look at this in SQL Server Management Studio.…
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.
