Hello,

I'm moving me VB6 application to ASP.Net. I need to know if I can convert my MS Access 97 database to MSDE. If it can't, can I convert it to SQL Server?

Absolutely, you can convert MS Access to SQL Server...if memory serves me correctly, MSDE is simply SQL Server with a little bit crippled.  For the most part, you can do what you want.  For help on how to do this, there are numerous articles on the web on how to do what you want.

Access has a tool to convert an existing Access database into a SQL Server database.

That tool is dependent on your version of access...I have Access 2002 and I don't have that option

Now that everyone is excited, does this tool convert Access 97 to MSDE?

Well, I can't find anything that conclusively says Access 97 can upsize to MSDE. However, both Access 2000 & 2002 can, so I assume 97 can also.
