When I use access to upsize my existing mdb database to a new SQL Database, (created by Access during the process) once the upsize has been done I cannot add or delete any records from the tables on SQL Server.

Why ?

You simply need to make sure that the "linked tables" in Access have primary keys.  Of course, this means that your underlying tables in SQL Server must also have VALID primary keys.  You cannot update a record in Access unless you have a primary key on it.
