I have been able to link tables from MS Access to SQL server with no problem, my question is : is there a way to link or upsize the queries that I have done in Access to the SQL server along with the tables?

Nope, you cannot move the queries. MS SQL Server is designed very differently from Access(and rightly so!). You have to learn to write stored procs which essentially contain these queries or you have to execute these queries from your front end. Writing a store dproc to execute these queries is not a big deal. If you just want output from a SQL query then just write the sql and store it in a .txt file and execute it using isql. For example if your sql query is stored in a file called test.txt here is how you can execute it.

isql -Uuser_name -Ppasswd -Sserver_name -itest.txt -otest.out

where test.out is a output file for the query results.
