Migrate Access 2007 database to FEBE

I administer an Access 2007 dastabase.  I need to migrate 40 stand alone versions of the database to a single FEBE configuration on a secure server.  

Q: Is there anything I should know before deploying this?  Simulations have gone smoothly...which is what worries me.

Q: Should I consider migrating to Access 2010 while I am making changes?  My company is on Office 2010 so this would keep OAS on the same page.

Why would you have 40 stand alone versions of a database and not use a central file/database? How do you plan on syncing these databases?  

What is FEBE? and what is OAS?

The original vision was a stand alone database, used to record equipment maintenance in 40 different but similar locations throughout the company.  As the vision has evolved we realized we should have everyone working in the same database instead of separate.  (Sounds pretty short sited, but the fundamental intent of the database has changed.)

FEBE is Front End Back End-meaning splitting the database and have all locations linked to the same tables on a secure network server.  OAS is Office Automation System-an acronym I picked from the in-house IT group.

What do you mean Syncing?  Once their data is transferred to the FEBE configuration, what syncing is required?

As you configure each machine, you could export each separate database to a csv and then import it into the master database, the problem being that the indexes will try and overwrite each other.. what you could do is prefix each table with the department name/number or machine-name of the originating database

I'd try 2 machines in a test environment first, just copy off their mdb's and this way you can check for problems/errors, don't forget to do a complete test.  If this works out then you can roll it out.
