SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access (SSMA Access)
Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for Access is a tool for migrating databases from Microsoft Access versions 97 through 2003 to Microsoft SQL Server 2005. SSMA for Access converts Access database objects to SQL Server database objects, loads those objects into SQL Server, and then migrates data from Access to SQL Server.
However, SSW tested SSMA on "1 SampleData2000 - Examples of Upsizing Issues.mdb" provided in %Program Files%\SSW Upsizing PRO\Samples folder. One table gone missing in SQL Server 2005 and in a few tables records were not upsized.
