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?

Problem with ODBC from MS Access 2007 to MS Sql Server 2008

Hi experts, I need some help with ODBC Connection Settings from MS Access 2007 to Sql Server 2008. Here is the Scenario, I have created a Database(StagingDB) with 5 tables on SQlServer 2008 and I have  Developed an MS Access 2007 Front End using Linked tables and ODBC to Insert/ Update data into these 5 tables. This is just working fine in my Dev database. ODBC Connection Settings are pointing to my DevServer. All I wanted to do now is, I want to point the ODBC Settings to the same database on my Test Server and then to Production Server. I have Changed the Server name in the ODBC File to point it to my Test Server and If I try to Insert  some data into test server its stil going into the database on Dev server. Is this the right way to do. Please help me with this. thanks In Advance..

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?

Access 2007 connection to SQL 2000 REALLY slow


I have an Access2000 ADP that I want to run under Access2007.  The problem I have is that some forms take up to 45 seconds to open in Access2007!  These are not complicated forms--just simple navigable reference forms like setting up transaction types etc. that are based on basic select statements like:

SELECT * FROM ArReceivableType

Where ArReceivableType is a reference table (less than 10 columns, all int or nvarchar(100) max) containing about 15 or 20 rows.  They open instantly in Access2000.

I put a trace on to see what is happening on the SQL Server, and I noticed heaps of nasty code like this that generates tens of thousands of reads:

select object_name(sotblfk.id), user_name(sotblfk.uid), object_name(sotblrk.id), user_name(sotblrk.uid) from sysreferences srfk, sysobjects sofk, sysobjects sotblfk, sysobjects sotblrk where srfk.constid = sofk.id and srfk.fkeyid = sotblfk.id and srfk.rkeyid = sotblrk.id and user_name(sofk.uid) = N'dbo' and object_name(sofk.id) = N'FK_FaAssetTransactionWork_ArReceivableType_ArReceivableTypeId'

It looks like Access2007 is reading all of the constraints for the underlying table, including all foreign keys.  My SQL database contains 1400+ tables all with properly constructed foreign keys and other constraints.

Any suggestion on how to NOT have Access2007 do this?  Right now, Access2000 works gr

upgarde accdb (access 2007) files to SQL EXPRESS 2008 R2


Is there a program that I can download that aids in converting an access (accdb) file to sql express 2008 R2?

Thank you


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.

SSMA for Access 2007 SQL Server 2008 Unable to Register

I have downloaded and installed the SSMA 2008 for Access 4.2 QFE1.exe on my Windows XP and Office 2007 Ultimate laptop, and tried to use it, but when the License Management pop-up opens and I click on the license registration page link on Step 1 of the instructions, IE opens and goes to the RegSysProfileCenter and displays the error message "An unknown error occurred while processing your request. This is most likely due to a connection failure. Please try again."  Why is this happening.  What's wrong with the website/page.  An "unknown error" means there's no known cause.  What's happening?  I keep trying over and over and over...  I've also tried to use it on my other Vista machine, but it keeps wanting to install Access 2010 runtime files (Office 2007 is installed) which it can't download - so it fails there too.  This is really getting frustrating.  Please show me you are truly "Microsoft" and NOT "Microcrap", which is a growing trend...  Thanks.

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.

"Actions / Open With Access" Always Fails with Access 2007.



I am trying to open a List with the Actions / Link with Access functionality.  Every time I try, it simply opens up the MS Access interface as though I had gone through the Start button and selected MS Access.  However, it shows the name of the database, in the right side panel, that was in the "Open with Microsoft Access" dialog box that opens after you select Link with Access.  If you click on the database name, I get an error box saying that the database doesn't exist.

The caveat here is that it used to work.  I have a database that I have been using to run reports and custom queries on a List.  Now, if I click on the Linked Table, I get the error message "You do not have the necessary permissions to use the '[object]' object.  Have your sys admin or the person who created the object establish teh appropriate permissions for you." 

I am the one who created the list and I have admin rights to this area of Sharepoint.

I have also tried to perform the same tasks to another Sharepoint site where I have full Admin rights over the entire site.  Same problem.

The version of Sharepoint is

I also have MS Office 2003, Project and Visio, installed on my PC.

Any ideas or thoughts on what the problem may be?  Our Sharepoint techs and our

Linked Server From SQL 2008 R2 (32 or 64 bit) TO Access 2007 mdb


I have what I thought was a simple task.  Create an OLEDB connection to an Access2007 MDB data file within SQL Server 2008 R2.  Here's my environment:

    Windows 7 64-bit OS
    SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit
    Office 2010 32-bit (installed 32-bit because all legacy data needed to be ported)

My first attempt was within SQL Server's Management Studio by navigating to Server Objects - Linked Servers and right-click selecting New Linked Server...
First indication of some trouble began when I didn't see an ODBC Provider for my Access database.  After trying a few options, I turned to Google expecting a quick resolution.  Here is the beginning of 5 days of going round in circles!!!

Eventually I found some links that led me to potential solutions:

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

SQL 2008 servers and MOSS 2007 with SSRS


I need help figuring out the limitations in a multi-database server environment and MOSS 2007 installation with SSRS.  Here is the run down:

  • I currently have MOSS 2007 server with backend on SQL 2005, which also acts as the SSRS server.  In addition I have another SQL 2005 server where business data resides and against which most of the SSRS reports run.
  • Future plan (over which I don't really have a say) is MOSS 2007 with backend on SQL 2008, which will remain to be the SSRS server.  The second SQL server with business data will be migrated to SQL 2008 R2.

Questions: does this architecture requires SSRS 2008 add-in or SSRS 2008 R2 add-in (integrated mode)?  Will there be an issue of building SSRS 2008 reports that go after SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 data mix?
