MS Access Database Conversion Tool

The MS Access database conversion tool contained within RazorSQL allows users to convert MS Access tables to and create MS Access tables from the following database types:

  • DB2
  • HSQLDB
  • MS SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite

RazorSQL contains conversion tools to convert one or many tables at a time. When converting tables, the tool looks at the type of database the table is being converted to, and generates the database specific DDL to generate the table. It looks at the source database column types and does any adjustments necessary to convert those column types to the destination database's format. The tool then generates and executes the insert statements necessary to populate the table data on the destination database.

The following is an example of the DDL for a MS SQL Server table:

CREATE TABLE sample.dbo.department ( dnumber int NOT NULL, dname varchar(25) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (dnumber) )

When converting the above MS SQL Server table from SQL Server to MS Access, the conversion tool generates the following MS Access DDL corresponding to the above MS SQL Server DDL:

CREATE TABLE department ( dnumber integer NOT NULL, dname varchar(25) NOT NULL ); CREATE INDEX PrimaryKey ON department (dnumber) WITH PRIMARY;
