Is it possible to remove system generated fields as a result of a replicated table in access 2010?

I have a 2007 access database that was replicated and the primary tables now have several system generated fields.  I can't figure out how to remove them.  I'm importing data from these tables into a new unreplicated 2010 project, and some of their properties are keeping me from doing it (auto-number fields, for example).  thanks

Two tools that I'm aware of:

   Michael Kaplan's TSI Un-Replicator Add-in

   http://www.trigeminal.com/lang/1033/utility.asp?ItemID=7#7

   Graham Search's Unreplicate Utility

   http://www.pacificdb.com.au/MVP/Code/UnReplicate.htm

There is also this MSKB article, which documents a FAQ covering un-replicating a DB.

Just tripped across this Office Developer article as well:

  Can't find a current link for Graham's :(
