Conversion from Access to SQL Server - Assistance

Hey Experts! I am going to be migrating a client's back-end Access DB to SQL Server and know that code changes will be required, queries may be impacted, stored procedures and pass through queries may be recommended -- I wondered if there were a site to help me make sure I cover all my bases and to help me expedite the process. I have upsized the data a couple times and it all went in fine -- data is normalized -- But I've done this is the past and neglected to take notes on all that I had to do.

I appreciate any direction you may have for me.

Thanks a lot!
