"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The easiest way is to create an empty database in SQL Server, and then select Import from the database context menu.  Follow the wizard steps, and it will move all the data and structures into SQL Server.

Note that you may wish to define the database first (improving the database schema) and then importing the data through the same path, mapping the Access tables to the SQL tables.

This doesn't address any application level issues.
