Microsoft Access Database Upgrade

Database word cloud concept

As database software developers we specialise in updating Microsoft Access Databases to a Microsoft SQL Server database platform.

Microsoft Access is a great 1st generation database for many businesses. It is considerably more adapt to storing business data than spreadsheets. However Microsoft Access is designed as a ‘desktop’ database solution intended for modest data volumes shared between a small number of users.

If you find your Access Database is running slowly, it could be you require a more powerful solution. Luckily, Microsoft have just such a solution for you called Microsoft SQL Server. You can think of it as the ‘Big Brother’ to access. SQL Server is a ‘Server’ database solution and Microsoft Access is a ‘desktop’ solution.

The good news is that there is a relatively painless migration route from Microsoft Access to Microsoft SQL Server. Additionally Microsoft Access can be used as a client in a SQL Server solution. Therefore if you are familiar with writing Microsoft Access reports and forms those skills can still be used in a new Microsoft SQL Server solution.
