i am using the Import Wizard in SQL 2000 to import tables from an Access 2003 database.
many of my tables include a Date/Time field.  
when i use the Import Wizard to import these tables, those fields get converted to the SmallDateTime data type which either causes an overflow error, or i lose the seconds data.

How can i import these tables so the the Date/Time fields get converted to the larger DateTime data type?
