Familiarize people with the process of retrieving data from SQL Server using an Access pass-thru query. Microsoft Access is a very powerful client/server development tool. One of the ways that you can retrieve data from a SQL Server is by using a pass-thru query. This video covers the basics of creating and working with pass-thru queries.
1. The video first shows the viewer how to create a pass-thru query in Access.
2. The data in the SQL Server table that the pass-thru query will return is displayed in SQL Server Management Studio.
3. We then create the T-SQL string in the pass-thru query and create an ODBC data source that will be used to connect to the SQL Server.
4. Finally, we store the ODBC connection string in the pass-thru query so that the pass-thru query can be run at any time.
