Using VBA, you can attach the SQL Server table(s) to your .mdb, and use DAO commands and INSERT INTO SQL... to do the work.

Or, under VB, you can define both the .MDB and the SQL Server database to your app using a DSN for each, then use either DAO or if enterprise version RDO, or ADO, or you also can use a combination of DAO from the .MDB, and you can use SQL insert statements you form from reading the input table, and process into SQL Server using RDO, ADO, or you can  use the SQL Client Object SQL-DMO by including it as a reference in your VB Project.  

Also, you can download uopsizing tools from the Microsoft site that will get your tables and data up to a SQL Server.  The real problem is that there are too many ways to do it!

I am primarily writing and supporting migration systems at this time, doing a lot of migrating of tables from Access .mdbs to SQL server.  Because it is not a simple one for one process, and we need to build cross references in the process, we use VB 5.0 Enterprise edition, ODBC to the .MDB and SQL server, and RDO to read in resultsets from the MDB and insert statements and the .execute method of RDO to create records on the SQL Server Database.  Works as good as nay other method, but you need at least VB 5.0, RDO 2.0, Access 97 (Ver 8.0) to get software that doesn't have so many memory leaks that the process will stop

In MSSQL server 7.0 beta you can use data transformation services to import data it is windows based, fast and handy
you can select multiple tables. I do not know it is challenging
but perhaps it can replace this heavy job cymbolic is doing.
Put still we need to create tables firs with code, if we import into new table we loose indexes and relationships.
