- We've established the parameters for our project.…We've run the assessment report…and we've addressed the issues with our database.…Now it's time to perform the conversion…and move our tables into SQL Server.…In order to do that, I'm going to return back to…SQL Server Migration Assistant and up here…in the Access Metadata Explorer, I'm going to scroll up…and I'm going to right-click on the database here…and I'm going to say Refresh this Database.…Then when I scroll back down, I should see that that…EmployeePhotos table is here, so it's referring to the…Access Database that we edited in the last movie…and we can see that we have that new table here.…

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.
