SSMS Import from Access 2003 does not import indexes

I used SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) 2008 to import data from an Access 2003 database.  It transfered the rows / column fine, but did not transfer indexes.  Is my only option setting them all up manually?  I am not up to relationships yet without the indexes.

What do you mean 'import data from an Access 20003 database'.  In Access, the index is part of the table object.  Only when you import data from an Access database into another Access database, are the Indexes copied over.  Because each rdbms has its 'own' way of creating tables and indexes, the indexes do not follow.  I believe you will have to create your indexes from within SSMS

SSMA apparently migrates Access indexes to SQL Server. From Help in SSMA:
Conversion Results
The following table shows which Access objects are converted, and the resulting SQL Server objects:

Access Object  Resulting SQL Server Object
