Hello,

When running Upsizing Wizard in Access 2007 (trying to move the backend DB to SQL 2005 Workgroup edition. Frontend still be in Access-using linked tables)
I'm getting an error in the end report:

--------------------------------------------------------
Errors
      Table:      Table Name
      Table was skipped, or export failed
--------------------------------------------------------

And this is it. No more details to do any troubleshooting. I went over all report pages and no info about the skipped table in question. Anyway, my question is how to find more info about the error and how to troubleshoot it.

Thanks!

You should be using SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access, free from Microsoft instead of the Upsizing Wizard which is garbage. SSMA is a very good tool.

Jim, what do you recommend using:

1) Link the Access tables to the SQL Server tables
or
2) Use an Access project (ADP)

Thanks

I would not recommend using ADP's for multiple reasons; ADP's will not be supported within the next 2 releases of Access, not to mention the learning curve. Also, in ADP's you lose a lot of Access functiuonality, you cant use regular Access tables, etc.

I would recommend starting out linking tables or using pass through which is much faster than table linking.

Jim

Hi Tom,

I'm glad  that worked out for you. I found SSMA by accident; it seemed like they were hiding it for awhile...
