A few days ago I installed SQL Server 2005 Express edition and successfully used the upsizing wizard to convert a MS Access database to SQL Server database. Today I found I could get VB.Studio Express. The instructions said to delete SQL Server Express and .NET before installing VB Studio because it would re-install them both. I faithfully did that but since then I have been unable to get the upsizing wizard to work again. I have uninstalled SQL Server and re-installed it but still cant get it working. From SQL Server Configuration manager I can confirm that Shared Memory and TCP/IP protocol are both enabled for both protocols for clent and protocols for SQLEXPRESS Both the SQL Server and the SQL Browser are running. And fromÃÂ SQL Server Surface Configuration I can confirm that OPENROWSET AND OPENDATASOURCE SUPPORT is disabled; CLR Registration is disabled; OLE AUTOMATIONÃÂ is enabled; and xpCommandshell is disabled.
When I run the upsizing module it goes through the motions but the report at the end says "table was skipped or export failed" for each of the tables in the database.
I have looked everywhere I can think of to try to find a solution but no one so far has been able to help.
