Familiarize people with the process of utilizing SQL Server views from within Microsoft Access. Microsoft Access is a very powerful client/server development tool. One of the SQL Server objects that you can interact with from within Microsoft Access is a SQL Server view. After linking to a SQL Server view, the developer can create queries, forms, and reports based on that view. In fact, in most cases the data is editable!

Video Steps

1. The video first shows the viewer how to create a view in SQL Server Management Studio.

2. Once the user creates the view, they learn how to link to the view using an ODBC datasource.

3. The video demonstrates how the data in the view is editable.

4. The video then illustrates how easy it is to create forms and reports based on the view data.
