I'm upsizing an Access 2003 DB to SQL Server 2005.  The Upsize Wizard generated the following code.  What is the Extended Property "Append Only" all about?  Note that InsuranceCoID is the PK column.
IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM ::fn_listextendedproperty(N'AppendOnly' , N'SCHEMA',N'dbo', N'TABLE',N'tlkupInsuranceName', N'COLUMN',N'InsuranceCoID'))
EXEC sys.sp_addextendedproperty @name=N'AppendOnly', @value=N'False' , @level0type=N'SCHEMA',@level0name=N'dbo', @level1type=N'TABLE',@level1name=N'tlkupInsuranceName', @level2type=N'COLUMN',@level2name=N'InsuranceCoID'
GO

You'll get better results in upsizing if you switch from the upsizing wizard to SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access.  Migration Assistant is a much better alternative that basically replaced upsizing wizard, free from Microsoft.
