Access database(Jet Engine) and SQL Server or SQL Server express
I am trying to find out what are the big differences between access
database Jet engine and SQL Server? If I have serveral web
applications (same content different copies) running as different
sites(on IIS), each site using an access as a back-end database, all
sites will be running simultaneously, all the access databases are on
the same machine, on this approach, does each copy of access has its
own Jet engine to handle database transaction or only has one Jet
engine with multiple threads handles multiple copies of access
database. Also, I'd like to know what kind database, and data...Possible to keep MS Access interface and migrate the MS Access to MS SQL Server?
Would it be possible to migrate the MS Access 2000 to MS SQL Server
My application is using MS Access 2000 as database and as user
interface such as forms. Now, I want to migrate the backend database
from MS Access 2000 to MS SQL Server 2000. However, I want to keep the
MS Access 2000 interface. Would it be possible?
If I migrate the MS Access to SQL Server, would the queries, back-end
VBA, macro, tables and forms be affected? Do I need to change the MS
Access data type to SQL server supported data type?
Which tool I can use to do the migration? Upsizing wizard or exporting...Loads of errors when querying MS SQL Server Express 2005 from Access 2007

I think you're going to have to expand a little bit more in your question
here, as is not 100% quite clear what you're trying to do.
You might want to make a little bit of a distinction between MS access, the
development system that allows you to write code, build forms, and build
reports, and that of the database engine that you choose to use with MS
access. When you build an application MS access, you then choose your
database engine, that might be oracle, SQL server, or perhaps more often
leave the default jet database.
So when you say make a client access application, are you talking about a
piece of software that you plan to install and each computer? The fact that
your introducing the issue of java further complicates your question.
Perhaps your question is simply you have some java code running on a server,
and with to open a mdb file (an access database file). In this situation
you're not really using MS access at all here (you using what is called the
jet database engine to read that mdb file). For all the trouble in this type

I have a very frustrating problem. I have a situation that works fine
on some computers, but not on others. I have SQL Server Express 2005
and Access 2003 loaded on 4 computers. I have set up a "Linked
Server" in SQL Server linked to my Access database. I am running
queries on t-SQL against the Access tables through the linked server.
On all of the computers, I can do select queries and they all work
great but what I need to do is run Update, Insert, Delete queries as
well. On a couple of the computers, it works fine, locally and across
the LAN, and a VPN as far as that goes. But on other computers I can
do Select queries (also across the network) but no update queries. I
get the error message "OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for
linked server "securedjetls" returned message "Operation must use an
updateable query." where securedjetls is the name of the linked
server. The Access database on the computer that is not working is a

I don't have a problem opening and editing the northwind.mdb.
I found a workaround. This database has a fronted and a backed. When I

The technical support guys at my company have set up my system so that
the server containing the MS Access database is on one server, while
the pages that should access the database are on another server.
When the pages and database are on the same server, I usually just
connect through ODBC.
The problem is that I don't know how to set up an ODBC connection to
link from one server to a database in another.
Anyone know what I am getting at and know of a possible solution, or a

Did you try? I know that one receives a message box saying that your
changes will not be saved when one tries to edit. But, TTBOMK the
changes are saved.
Regardless, MS provides a very slick free download, Mangement Studio
Express. IMO its interface is much superior to that of Access.
Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition also has a Database Explorer
that edits and manages SQL 2005 Express quite nicely.

...MS-Access 2003 & SQL Server
I have a form in a Access Project (SQL DB on the back end). On this form I
have created a Combo box that pulls a list of dept and dept #'s from the
DEPT table, and displays the dept name in the Combo box. I tried a view
instead of a table but the Combo box would not update. On this form I also
have a sub form. The sub form has on it, among other things, the following
fields; SVCCODE, SVCODE TOTAL. I also have hidden on the sub form a GLCODE
and GLDESC fields.
What I need to happen is when the Main form Combo box is changed to a new
dept desc, let say Radiology, I want the subform to display the radiology
What is actually happening is when the form opens a list of SVCCODES are
displayed, I am not sure what they are connected to, and when I choose a
dept name from the combo box the SVCCODE's display, on the subform, the
department list of service codes. For example when I open the form, the
subform starts off with the list of service codes I mentioned above and the
Combo box is blank, but then when I change to a different department, in the
combo box on the main form, the subform does not display those SVCCODE
records correlating to the main forms combo box, instead it displays the
SVCCODE's for the department in the list from the department table. So if I
change to Radiology, it does not care and displays the BLOOD BANK SVCCODE's,
those being the next department.

It is true that an ADP project cannot update the DESIGN of tables in SQL Server
2005. You should be able to update the DATA though with no problem.
If you are talking about design changes, then no there is no fix that I am aware
of. ADPs are pretty much on their way out so I doubt that any sort of fix like
that would be coming.
