Migrating from MS Access to SQL Server

A common problem for companies is outgrowing MS Access. Outgrown MS Access results in slow performance, data corruption, error alerts, and security issues. And if you’re not much lucky, then there might be a chance of a crashed system. Symptoms like these indicate that your application is approaching or has exceeded MS Access’ built-in limitations, and therefore, it makes sense to convert your MS Access database to SQL Server.

There are several reasons why Microsoft Access should be replaced with SQL Server; among them are several significant technical limitations that cannot be resolved with workarounds or special programming techniques.

When moving from Access to SQL Server, it is not necessary to rewrite the entire system. Inexperienced developers often attempt this unnecessary and more costly change.


Convert MS Access To SQL Server

It can be relatively straightforward or challenging to convert MS Access to SQL Server, depending on a number of factors. Throughout these years, PCA has developed a very efficient system for migrating MS Access to SQL Server.

PCA made a system of migration that is highly secured and gives maxim protection to your business data. In addition, every company (from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies) can afford it.


How does PCA do this?

An often-made mistake is to rewrite the entire system from scratch. Taking a phased approach, focusing on very specific areas of the system and in the right order is the correct way to proceed. If you try to do too much at once, or if you do things out of order, you will only add unnecessary expense and risk to the process. Most MS Access interfaces can be reconnected with SQL Servers simply by modifying the database connection.
