Problem connecting to SQL Server 2008 R2 Express from Access 2007

I have a problem with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with MS Access 2007. I am running Windows 7 with 8 gigs memory. I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. Do I now need to install SP1 because I am running with Windows 7? I can open SQL Server using the Management Screen but I cannot connect to MS Access 2007 using SQL Server Express as the database. When trying to connect to SQL Server from Access 2007, I keep getting the message that SQL Server 2005 cannot be found. It will not allow me to sign onto sql server 2008 stating that it cannot be found. Do I have to now run the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1? Is there an upgrade to MS Access 2007 which will allow me to use SQL Server 2008 R2 Express?

Upsizing Database from Access 2007 to SQL Server Express 2008

I have recently downloaded and installed SQL Server Express 2008 on to my Windows XP SP3 machine, I have a large MS Access 2007 database (.accdb) I wish to export out to SQL Server. I am using the 'upsizing wizard' that is found on the 'Database Tools' tab of Access 2007. Clicking on the 'Database Tools' tab and then on the 'SQL Server' button starts the Upsizing wizard. On the first page of which I select the 'Create new database' option, the next page asks 'What SQL Server would you like to use for this database?' it already has '(local)' entered into the text box, so I leave that unchanged, I tick the trusted connection box and name the new SQL Server database and then click 'Next'. But I get the following error (it appears in a Windows information message box):

Title: Microsoft SQL Server Login
Message Text:
Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 2
[Microsft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]ConnectionOpen(Connect()).
Connection failed:
SQL State: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

PS. I have successfully used the upsizing wizard to export the same Access database into SQL Server Express 2005 on another machine.

What am I doing wrong this time?

Trying to add a linked server - SQL Server 2008 Express Edition to Access 2007

OS: Vista SP1
SQL Server 2008 Express Edition installed locally
Office 2007 installed locally

I'm trying to add a linked server to a named instance of the SQL Server 2008 that links to an Access 2007 database.

I've spent a couple of hours trying this now - many, many different ways.

Always seem to end up back at Error 7303 - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa226395(SQL.80).aspx

I've tried all versions of Access database file 2000, 2002-2003, 2007
I've tried to use different drivers -

Office 12 for Access driver

I've tried to use the upsizing wizard from Access - no good, cannot get it to connect to the SQL Server 2008 Express Edition instance

Whichever way I try it I end up with this message/error:

the upsizing wizard only works with microsoft sql server versions 6.50 sp5 or higher

I've read: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/838594 and followed it - same error.

I really want this to just work. Like it should already.

Any suggestions appreciated.

how to make working WPF 2010 program make changes to SQL Server 2008 Express files

(1) I have a working WPF 2010 program that manipulates a table in SQL Server 2008 Express (2) the program does delete, update, select and insert correctly however in its own project file folder logbooklmk.mdf   logbooklmk_log.ldf (3) I want the actual SQL Server 2008 express files to be changed yes I know the issue is sharing and the copy option only applies to the local project files. I found this out by trying always copy, never copy and copy if newer. I probably have to change the .xsd folder to refer to the actual SQL Server 2008 Express file. Tried that once and it failed. Something about sharing not allowed.

Access 2007 upsizing wizard can't connect to SQL Server 2005 Express


When trying to use the Access 2007 upsizing wizard to move a database to SQL Server 2005 Express, I get the following error message:

Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 2
[Microsoft][ODBC SQ Server Driver][Share
Connection failed:
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server
does not exist or access denied.

I get the same message regardless of whether I configure SQL Server to run as a local system or service.

I am the only user on my Vista 32 PC and am therefore the administrator. As far as I can tell I have sufficient authority since I can start and stop SQL Server.

As a newbie to all this, I can't find any step by step instructions as to how a local copy of SQL Server should be configured to work with the upsizing wizard. In fact I can't even find any Access 2007 help walk-throughs on this upsizing wizard, let alone troubleshooting its error messages.

Any help would be appreciated, as well as links to step by step instructions (which I can't find in the MSDN Library materials).

PS Does MS understand how inadequate and inefficient its built-in documentation really is? Maybe that's what keeps MS Press in business!

Back up SQL 2008 Express files


Hi All,

I'm running Visual Studio 2008 Express that comes with SQL 2008 Express.

I have developed a web site with a SQL 2008 Express database. I need to upload the database as a .bak backup file to the server that can host the web site.

How do I create that backup of the database ? There seem to be no tools that come with SQL Express to back it up. 

Free applications like SQLBackupandFTP only seem to back up the system databases - not hose created in projects. 

I downloaded SQL Express SP2 but that doesn't seem to have made any difference either !?

I think I need a script file - using T-SQL but I'm not a SQL programmer so any help would be appreciated !


Access 2007 / SQL 2008 slow to open...



May I ask how this problem is finally solved.






Access 2007, SQL 2008 and linked tables


I have a bunch of databases running on a SQL server 2008 instance.  They're all set to the default Latin collation, and the server is set to UK English locale.


I have an access database using linked tables to the SQL server.  The lcal PC is Windows 7 and also set to English UK locale.


However, the date fields in the SQL server tables are interpreted by Access as "text" type, not date.  When I type a date into them in standard UK english format - dd-mm-yyyy, access accepts them but the SQL server rejects them because for some reason it is wanting to store the data in the format yyyy-dd-mm.


I realise I'm no expert, this is probably something really simple and I'm probably being stupid, but can anyone shed any light on WTF i going on here and why, and how I fix it.  I realise I could code in access forms something to force the date into yyyy-dd-mm format and re-interpret it to English when I want to display it, but that's clunky and horrible.


Any ideas gratefully received.  Thanks.

Can't download Access 2007 .accdb


 I have a web page with links to various files including an Access 2003 .mdb and an Access 2007 .accdb.  Both are about 1 mb in size.  Both are in the same directory.  The hyperlink for both is coded the same except for the database name. Users are instructed to right click on the links and choose "Save Target As..." to download the application to their computer.  Currently, users and myself can download the .mdb trouble free.  The .accdb will not.  The error message states that the site cannot be found or is unavailable.  This happens with any .accdb I put in the directory.  Any ideas on how to correct this?

Accessing Excel\Access files through Sql Server 2008 R2 Stand 64 BIT



This has been just such a pain with 64 bit! Data Access!!  I have been unable to use linked servers from SQL server to access files because there is no Jet 64 bit. Now, I have been using bulk insert statements.  These are working ok, but for some uknown reason, for a certain .csv file I am getting unexpected end of line errors.  I have tried many things to no resolution..

How can I get linked servers to work with SQL Server 64 bit for excel and access?  Why would microsoft leave this out??

Connectivity problem between MS Access 2007 and SQL Server Express 2005


I have linked my tables, in SQL Server Express 2005, to MS Access 2007 and created a File DSN named LocalSQLServer.dsn. Both the front end (MS Access 2007) and the back end (SQL Express 2005) are on the same machine.

I am trying to check an open connection , and for that I have written a module -- Function CheckConnection(strFileDSNName As String, _

      strDBName As String, Optional strUN As String, Optional strPW As String) As Boolean

strConnect = "Provider=ODBC" & _

";FILE DSN =" & strFileDSNName & _

";Database=" & strDBName


I have created a form with a command button to check the connection, but it is giving the following error

"-2147467259; Method 'Close Connection' of Object'_CurrentProject failed


I am not able to figure it out, if the Connection Parameters that I have taken are correct or not. Please help me in this.
