Default Migrating From Access

After a number of false starts I decided to Try Again to make the switch from Access to SQL Server. I am using SQL Server 2005 Express.

I am trying to do the Migration Utility in chapter 8 and having trouble getting it to work. SQL Server is installed as is the associated Management studio. Here are the specifics.

I log on to the Management studio. The login screen shows:
Authentication: Windows Authentication
When I click Connect button, it connects.

When attempt to run the Migration program in chapter 8 it fails. I have tried using the Server Name with and without the computer name (SIRMILT) and no combination works.

The error message I get when I use the server name SIRMILT\SQLEXPRESS and the user namr SIRMILT\SIRMILT is "Login failed or user 'SIRMILT\SIRMILT'. The user is not assciated with a trusted SQL Server connection."

If I login with SQLEXPRESS an SIRMILT I get the error: "[DBNETLIB] [ConnectionOpen(Connect().]SQL Server does not exist or access denied."

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction or pont out my mistake.

Please review the other threads on Chapter 8 to see if any of those help.Also, run the SQL Server Configuration Manager and check the SQL Server Network Configuration to ensure that TCP/IP and Named Pipes are enabled.

Default Migrating From Access


Thank you for your very quick response and suggestions.

I have tried to find any references to either TCP/IP or Named Pipes in the SQL Server Configuration Manager, trying to get the SQL Server active has really frustrated me and hopefully, with your help I will get it done this time.


PS: I have read and tried a lot of tutorials in the past but this volume is by far the best I have come across.
