Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video What you need to know, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- Before taking this course, you should have some experience working in an Access database. You should understand how to create and edit tables, as well as the role of selecting appropriate data types in creating relationships. Having some familiarity with query objects, and how forms and reports interact with the data would also be helpful. If you need a refresher on Access, go ahead and take a look at "Access 2013 Essential Training." However, I don't expect you to have any experience working with SQL Server, or any other database management system except for Access. I'll be walking you through the process of downloading and installing SQL Server, so we'll be starting from scratch on that front.
Now, let's get started.
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.
