Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing tables, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Now that our tables have been upsized to SQL Server,…there might come a time when we need to…modify their structure.…Typically you would just open up the table…in the Access design view in order to make changes…to the columns or data types.…For instance, in this Access KinetEco Upsize Database,…if I right click on the Products table…and go into design view, we're going to get this warning…here that says that it's a linked table whose design…can't be modified.…If I want to make any changes,…I need to do so in the source database,…which in this case, is going to mean SQL Server.…I can go ahead and say No, I don't want to open it,…and if we want to make a change to this table,…we'll have to go into Management Studio to do that.…
So in management studio, I'll just go into the database,…this KinetEco-Upsize SQL, which is where the source…of those data tables are in Access.…I'll expand my tables group here and…we'll find that Products table.…If I want to modify this table, I'll just right click on it…and go into design, just like in Access.…
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.
