This month's presentation will be on migrating MS Access databases to SQL Server using the upsizing wizard and the new SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access (SSMA).
Steve will discuss what the upsizing wizard and the SSMA can and can't do and will provide examples on how to handle situations where migration fails.
