Migrating DB from Access 2000 to SQL Server 2000

I used the import wizard on an empty d/b from the sql server, setting as source the Access2000 file and destination my empty d/b. All went ok, but I didn't get the database diagram, and all the primary/foreign/etc keys have also been reset...

Is there a way to migrate/upscale without losing the er diagram and the primary keys?

Thanks

If you have access 2000 (not sure if it is available in 97, you'll have to check) you could try use the Upsizing wizard to migrate your database to SQL Server. This should bring over the keys and table relationships. From Access, use Tools, Database Utilities, Upsizing Wizard.

Here is a link to the White Paper for the wizard

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:
 
   Download Upsize00.exe now
  (http://download.microsoft.com/download/access2000/whitep5/1/WIN98/EN-US/Upsize00.exe)
 
The Upsize00.exe file contains the following file:
 
   Upsize00.doc  A Microsoft Word document
  Readme.txt    The Readme file

Another benefit to this wizard is if you are going to use Access as your front end it will create the linked SQL tables for you.

I found the wizard, but when I press next, after I choose the "create new database" and add the user with CREATE table priviledges and choose the name of the new d/b in SQL Server, it just shows a message "Overflow" and stops there. Any ideas?

I even tried through the "use existing database" and added an empty d/b in System DSN, but still nothing happened. Again I got the message "Overflow"
