Access Migration Tutorial

Are you considering migrating that Microsoft Access application to Oracle Application Express? Well read on...

Hopefully you are aware of Oracle SQL Developer and that we have redeveloped the Migration Workbench and integrated it tightly with Oracle SQL Developer. An early adopter version of this is available now and will be production very soon. More of that in a subsequent post.

With Oracle Application Express 3.0 we introduced the Application Migration Workshop to assist with migrating your Access Forms & Reports. When I talk about this solution, I get asked do we have a step by step guide or methodology for such migrations. So, we have produced a migration tutorial to address this and have published it on OTN.

We have taken the Microsoft Access sample application, Northwind Traders and migrated it to Oracle Application Express. The tutorial covers this in step by step detail. Following this tutorial would be a useful exercise for any user that wishes to undertake migrating their applications from Microsoft Access to Oracle Application Express. We have called the converted application Southwind Wholesalers. :-)

You can see it running on and we have also provided it as a packaged application so you can examine it in detail.
