Access to SQL Server 2008 Drops Relationships

I'm trying to convert an Access 2000 database to SQL Server.

I've tried using the SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Import and Export Data Wizard, Access Upsizing Wizard (Move Data -> SQL Server), and a 3rd Party tool called EasyFrom (www.EasyFrom.net) and nothing converts the relationships that are in the Access Database.

Please refer to the two images to see that there are many relationships in Access but not in SQL Server.

Is this not possible? Am I doing something wrong? Thank's for your help.

I don't think that you'll find a tool that will convert the relationships. I know that SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access (free download from M$) won't migrate the relationships, but it's a much better tool in general for migrating Access than the Upsizing Wizard.

SSMA for Access migrated some of the relationships. I think there is something in Access that the migration tool doesnt handle correctly so it's dropping the relationships. We're just going to have to manually recreate the relationships that didn't transfer correctly.
