Microsoft Access to MS SQL

Convert Microsoft Access to Microsoft SQL Server:

Designing a database application requires careful consideration of the business environment's current situation as well as planning for future expansion in either the volume of data to be stored and retrieved, or the number of users accessing the database.

Choosing the right database engine

Delivering a database application that is unable to handle the growing needs of a business, or worse, that cannot handle the initial needs of the business environment, could prove a real career buster. Although tempting, designing every database application with a "sky's the limit" approach so that it can accommodate future expansion, may be too much and you need to find the right balance between maximum flexibility and database simplicity.

When selecting the most appropriate database engine for your application, you should consider:

  • Number of database users
  • Data Integrity
  • Volume of Data - both now and in the future
  • Simplicity

In the simplicity category, The Microsoft Jet Database Engine will be fine for the task. As the default database engine in Microsoft Access it is the most simple to create your database around and is compatible with all current versions of Microsoft Access (97 - 2003).

Microsoft Jet and SQL Server can provide a platform for a single workstation of small workgroup. As a client/server database, SQL Server has the performance advantage over Jet even when used in a small workgroup. SQL Server processes your queries on the server and returns only the resulting data to the client.

Data Integrity is best handled by SQL Server and this would be the most reliable choice if this is of prime concern. All changes made in the database are logged in a transaction log file. In the event of any database disaster; hardware failure or power interruption, the database can be repaired using the log file. With Microsoft Jet database engine, this kind of failure can permanently corrupt the database, although this may be possible to repair with third party database repair software.

Microsoft Access to SQL is an application to migrate Microsoft Access databases to Microsoft SQL server.
