Import Access data into Sql Server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-08-21
We have an Access database which we are planning to migrate to Sql Server 2008 R2. One of our developers is performing this task and today evening he came up to me and asked me the following question. I need help in answering this as I am new to Sql Server.

The data to be uploaded is in the Access table “TO BE UPLOADED INTO SQL”. I need to load this data in a Sql Server table.
The problem is that not all of the data is going into the Sql Server DB, and there are no error messages as to what records are not going in, and why. They just don’t go in to SQL Server.
The good news is that all but one August record did import OK.
Your thoughts?

He is asking me what steps needs to be taken to troubleshoot this. Can you guys help me in troubleshooting this?

Thank You.
