Adventure Works database download

Postby Baywatch1962 » Fri Apr 30, 2021 11:48 am

Received my book today and started going thru it. On page 5, it states to go to to download the database which it states will be an Access database. However, the zip file that downloads contains only 2 Excel spreadsheets - no Access database. Anyone have an idea how to get the Access database instead of the spreadsheets?

The Excel spreadsheets contain the same data as in Access database. You can find this information in Readme - Adventure Works.txt file that is part of the download.
If you want Access database, you can get it from

I found and downloaded the adventure works database, are there any others lying around? I don't have a link, but you can just straight up also download IMDb. I have it running on my MS SQL container at home for practice right now.
