Did you try a google search? (e.g. "import accdb Data Base file in sqlserver")

There is no importing an Access database in SQL Server. However, in Access you can upsize an Access database to SQL Server by going to Database Tools > SQL Server which will run the Upsize Wizard. Is this what you are trying to do?

If you are using SQL Server 2005 or 2008, I would recommend trying out Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access.

Download SSMA 2005 or 2008 (for your version of SQL Server) at:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=5abe098d-c7e1-46c6-994a-09a2856eef0b

Read up on Migration for Microsoft Access at:
http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2005/en/us/migration-access.aspx

Review Mary Chipman's Blog Post on how to use SSMA:

Thanks for the links and info. I hope I never have to migrate an Access database again, but I'll definitely put SSMA into my toolbelt.

There is no importing an Access database in SQL Server.


not sure what you mean by that... a data source is just a data source.
maybe you mean the other functionalities from Access, like Forms, and not the data?
you can import the data no problem with the new ACE drivers.

Maybe my phrasing is bad there, but what I assume suryagiri meant is "how can I take this accdb file and make it into a sql server database?" and I'm just saying there is no "import Access file" in SS.

If I was importing data from Access, I'd probably use openrowset. I haven't heard of ACE drivers, can you link to some info?
