Imo The first step would be to move the backend to SQL. Then you could write a new front end in c#.

Yeah there's no converting per se. You'd have to re-write all the forms, reports, etc. in the new architecture of your choice.

hmm, the back end is the easy bit to be honest. i dont fancy attempting to rebuild all the front end stuff.

when i said back end i mean the DB.

i wasn kinda hoping someone had invested a magic tool to doo the rest! :-)

There is a magic tool to move from mdb to adp (access front SQL back). Its the wizard in access.

hmm might be a good starting point. I imagine you'll still need to do some customization to get the coverted objects optimized for a web interface.

Let us know how it goes!

also i didnt want to offend anyone by not awarding points for helpfulness but the last time i did that i got jumped on by everyone telling me that, that's not the way the forum works and i should only award points once the question has actually been answered.
