I have an ASP.NET website that pulls data from a Microsoft Access 2010 database.  The website was working fine, but now with the increased number of hits I need to upgrade the Access 2010 database to Microsoft SQL Server 2010.  

I have installed the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access; however, I am not quite sure how to use it.  Can anyone give me a brief tutorial to migrate Access 2010 to SQL Server using this tool?

Thanks

This is a very nice blog on using SSMA:
http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2230/sql-server-migration-assistant-2008-ssma/

What will you be migrating?  Schema and data transfer very well, and most queries do, too.  SQL Server is a richer environment than MS Access, so usually migration is straightforward.

There is no such animal as Microsoft SQL Server 2010 do you mean Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2?

And why do you think a simple "upgrade" is going to resolve your performance problems?

rgturner: please keep asking questions if you need help.  There's no need to be absolutely accurate on versions numbers -- we all knew what you were talking about.  And it makes perfect sense that upgrading to SQL Server would improve performance of your application.

Have you used the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant with SQL Server 2012?

>>And it makes perfect sense that upgrading to SQL Server would improve performance of your application.<<
Really?  How do you honestly know that?  What if the application is relying fully on DAO or worse still forms with bound controls?  How is SQL Server going to help them there with a simple "upgrade"?
