What do you mean convert?

SQL 2000 has a program called DTS that will convert the database tables and then load them with the data.

If you are referring to the forms, queries, macros, reports, and code there really isn't anything that does a good job.  We recently did that very thing.  We used a product called AccessToVB. It did a fair job in converting the forms but the code required a lot of massaging.
Here is a link to the product we used.

Here is another product that claims to do it.
