If it is one time import then take the backup and restore it in sql using import export functionality.

If you want to connect MSACCESS to SQL you will have to look into upsizing the access DB.

In access go to >external data> odbc database> link the database.

This would create the link table in access which would allow you to use access and sql simultaneously.

Do you have the rights to insert rows into the SQL Server table?  If yes, open Access, do a linked table to your SQL Server table, then just run an insert query from the access table into the SQL Server table.
