Unanswered: how to set password when installing MSDE (was "Newbie to SQL")
I am Access user of both BE and FE. I would like to set my BE with SQL
Therefore, as trial I just downloaded MSDE2000A.Exe a Desktop SQL Engine from Microsoft. I need to install it. But due to some technical aspect (which I might not understand) I could not install it. Bcz whenever I am trying to install its setup file, it ask me a strong password. How to set it ? or how to supply it I dont know...
I installed it successfully. The information page is good. Thanks.
Do you have any other referece web page that would show me how to transfer my Access table data over to this installed SQL server and allow my FE to be still in MS ACCESS.bcz I desined my beautiful forms and its code after a lot of excesize. What are the initial steps I must follow?
With kind regards,

I'd suggest using the Access Upsizing Wizard as a start. It isn't a complete solution, but it gives you one heck of a head start! Microsoft has a great "How to", and there are versions for 2000 and 2002.
