I have an Access data table and I would like to make queries to that file from SQL Server. Do you know if that is possible and how should I proceed with this?

The problem is that Access SQL query debugging is very poor and I would like to use SQL Server Management studio to work with my query.

you need to add a linked server to access from sql server in that case and then use four part naming convention to refer to objects in Access when you query in SSMS
