i've heard that upsizing from access to sql/server is (a) totally painless,
or (b) fraught with whoopsies

at worst, you can export the tables from access (it's a menu ooption) as
csv or text files, and load them into sql/server using bulk copy

i guess it depends on whether you have the time to learn the desktop
version of sql/server

apparently microsoft has software as well as really good knowledge base
articles to do the upsizing, but i've never done it myself, although i can
dig up the urls if you want...
