what do you mean by importing access data to visual studio? do you just want to display data?

or do you want to take data from somewhere and import it into access?

I want to start using sql server 2005 which came with visual studio.
I don't want to use access any more, but want to import or copy the at least the table structure.

In the old enterprise manager, you could click on a database, select import and use a wizard.

Is there any way to do this with visual studio 2005?

I have been using vb6 for a long time, I want to practice with vb.net.

The DTS Wizard that comes with SQL Server can do this.  You should be able to find it here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\DTSWizard.exe

It can migrate all kinds of databases.

Access has an upsizing wizard.
