What MSSQL versions do AccessData products support?
AccessData 6.x products: MSSQL 2008 R2 through MSSQL 2014
AccessData 7.x products: MSSQL 2012 through MSSQL 2017
Why don't AccessData 7.x products support MSSQL 2008 R2?
AccessData added support for using MSSQL's internal sequences as of their 7.0 product release. MSSQL first implemented internal sequence in version 2012.
How can I upgrade to a 7.x product if I'm currently running MSSQL 2008 R2?
Before upgrading to an AccessData 7.x release, you will need to upgrade to MSSQL 2012 or 2014.
Can I upgrade my AccessData database straight from MSSQL 2008 R2 to 2016 or 2017?
No. Since 6.x products do not support MSSQL 2016 or 2017, and 7.x products don't support MSSQL 2008 R2, you will need to go to MSSQL 2012 or 2014 in order to upgrade the AccessData database to 7.x. After upgrading the AccessData database, you can then upgrade MSSQL to 2016 or 2017, if desired.
