Hello:

I have a bunch of tables built in MS Access and I need to convert them into SQL server tables.

What is the best tool for that using a GUI?

You can use SQL server data import export wizard.
You can start the wizard by using the following steps:
On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point toMicrosoft SQL Server , and then click Import and Export Data.

It should be able to take care of Access imports easily.

NO!

You should use the SQL Server Migration assistant for Access, here

This is a far superior tool for moving an Access backend to SQL Server
