Migrate MS Access 2003 database to SQL Server Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does 'SSMA for Access' actually work with SQL Server Express 2017? I have added the Access database to the SSMA Access Metadata Explorer just fine. However, I am unable to connect to my SQL Server (on my computer). I have also tried with Access databases converted to Access 97. I cannot find any information about SSMA working or not working with SQL Server Express. Perhaps I am missing something obvious.
