Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the SSMA Migration Wizard, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- The Migration Wizard in SQL Server Migration Assistant…can streamline many of the options…that we set over the course of the last chapter.…Depending on the scope of your migration project,…it might be an easier path for simpler databases.…In order to use the Migration Wizard,…we first need to start with an empty…database, just like we did before.…So here inside of SQL Server Management Studio,…I'm going to right click on Databases here,…we'll choose New Database, and this time…I'm going to give it a name of KinetEco-MigrationWizard.…We'll go ahead and press OK to create that new database,…and now we've got an empty database here…in our SQL Server that we can copy into.…
Let's go ahead and switch over to Migration Assistant.…Now if you have Migration Assistant open from the last…chapter, you're not going to see this Wizard option here,…so let's go ahead and see how to get that back.…I'll just close this for a moment here.…And if your project is open still from the last chapter,…we can just go to File and then Close Project.…
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.
