Migrate your Access databases to Access 2000 (or 2002 even better)
Then upgrade your database to the SQL server (if it's an access 2000 you'll
need a patch to access the SQL server 2000. The file name is accsql.exe). In
the process of upgrading choose a client-server application.
You'll have an extra work refining your queries (since they were transformed
into views and stored procedures, and some of them in *nothing*) but in the
end you'll get a very good working copy of your early work.
Well. After that, and after installing MDAC 2.6 or greater, you can allways
link the SQL tables in the Access 97 databases until you can tweek the
