Access SQL vs SQL Server 7 SQL


I presume you are considering migrating to SQL Server 7.0. If so, here are some issues that might come up as you migrate the select statements.

String functions are different.

Date formats are different.

Money formats are different.

SQL Server does not have field-validation like Access; the upsizing wizard will convert the field validations to insert and update triggers.

SQL Server does not like blanks in field names.

By the way, the upsizing wizard doesn't work with SQL Server 7 Beta 3 because of DMO differences between the two versions. Access 97 to SQL 6.5 to SQL 7.0 should work.

Hope this helps,
