I'm looking to see if there is a way to connect Access 2016 to SQL Express database using an OLE DB connection.
What I need to do is
- import data into the SQL Express tables
- create a form to update the SQL data
- create queries with calculated fields
- write reports
As of now I have the database created on my local C drive (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL14.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\DATA\mydb.mdf) but in the future it will reside on the network with multiple users who will have access to the database and I don't want to have to create and ODBC connection.
