Need tools to Convert Access to SQL environment

P: n/a
Guy
I got a big Access file (1 400 tables) to convert to SQL and I would
like to be provided with some automated tools, except upsizing wizard
and DTS, to convert it on my own.

I got a lot of forms and query to convert too.

Can someday provide me with at least one tool name ?

Thanks,

Guy

Hi
AFAIK the upsizing wizard is about your only option. SQL Server does not
have forms, these will remain in the access database/project.

Have you tried the wizard? If yes does it produce any errors?

John,

The wizard did a little bit of the job (a lot to complete), but nothing
is available to help me finish conversion, moreover with forms and
query.

What' the Access newsgroup URL ?

Thanks,

Guy

Hi

Either:

comp.databases.ms-access
microsoft.public.access.*

Your forms will need to remain in the access database or an access project,
they is no equivalent in SQL server.

Do you mean you want the forms / queries to remain in access but use
sql server as a source of tables, or do you want to convert them to
something else? Either way you might find this link helpful

http://www.microtools.us/

It's a tool that purports to convert an access application to an
asp.net one.

Hi Guy,

My application generator for MS SQL Server can do the entire job for
you
The benefits of this system are as follows:
1. The system generates true Client Server and Multi Tier
applications.
2. There is zero coding for common functionality, i.e. Adds, Updates,
Deletes, Audit trail, Security, Rolling Down Data, Cascading Deletes,
Posting to General ledger etc.
3. There is zero work of any kind for generation of data entry
screens and their lookups.
4. The back end is completely independent from the front end. You can
hit the database with any application or user interface and still be
sure that you have complete security and valid data.
5. Easy navigation through out the application. The generated user
interface is a familiar modern metaphor with a navigation tree on top
or at the side and data entry screens at the bottom. Also, the
generated user interface remembers customizations to each data entry
screen. This allows you to make sweeping changes to the interface, and
regenerate all data entry screens, without loosing your
customizations.
6. Consistent look and feel via OOP Inheritance and code generators.
7. Major changes in look and functionality are made in one place
only, and ripple down to all affected parts of the system without
programmer intervention. Again, this was accomplished with OOP
inheritance and also with code generators.
8. Users to have the ability to create queries and reports on the
fly. And the ability to save and reload those queries and reports in
many formats including Excel and HTML.
9. Users to have complete flexibility in customizing the look and
feel of the system. The extent to which each user can customize the
interface must be seen to be believed. This high level of
customizability creates a high degree of user acceptance.
10. Logical use of hot keys and local popup menus allow for easy mouse
free operation, permitting the user to keep his or her hands on the
keyboard, if the user so desires.
11. All custom code added to generated data entry screens and
generated backend code persists after regeneration.
12. Comes with a business rule generator
13. Comes with a data import utility
14. Comes with a data revalidation utility to use when you change your
business rules.
Get all this without programming.
If you need to quickly build feature rich, bug free business
applications for MS SQL Server, then please call (201 665 8906) or

1400 tables? Yikes. Is this thing set up properly? I'd make sure it
was before converting anything... Then you could use access as the
front and and SQL server as the back... but you might want to read
some of Chipman & Baron's book on the subject...
