Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting default SSMA project options, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that we have a couple of the…preliminary steps taken care of…to clean up and prepare our Access database for migration…and we've also created an empty SQL Server database…to copy things into,…it's finally time to turn our attention to…the Migration Assistant tool.…I've gone ahead and double clicked on that icon…that was placed on our desktop…during the installation process…and it opened up the SQL Server Migration Assistant…for Access tool here.…Now, when it first loads up,…we're going to see this Migration Wizard.…We're going to come back to this later on.…For now, just go ahead and press Close.…The SQL Server Migration Assistant has…lots of customizable options that you can explore…in order to meet the needs of your specific…database conversion requirements.…

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.
