My apologies to the highly respected Evolt members (all included).

Well, here goes my spanking, er, tip...it ain't no Al Gore and his invention
of the internet (political pun intended), but alas...

<tip type="SQL, Access">
Now since I'm moving into SQL from Access db's and hoping this will prevent
for some a problem I had at first...The upsizing wizard fails to work and an
error message occurs. Access 2000 was released before SQL Server 2000, so
the MS Office 2000 SR-1 patch must be installed. (Before I started studying
SQL, I always wondered what that SR-1 cd was for) Also, make sure you have
the current version of the Upsizing Wizard. The original version that
shipped with Access 2000 doesn't recognize SQL Server 2000.
