Two basic options
1.  Create a dsn that points to the sql server database, and connect (you'll need the appropriate authentication details)
2.  Create a dsn-less connection - much the same as 1. above, but done through code.

For a new comer to this option 1 is probably the best. In Access, chose the external data, and select ODBC connection. This will start the wizard - just follow your nose.
