What are the tasks to undertake in rewriting an Access 2003 application into ASP.NET using Visual Studio with C#?

I was assigned the task of rewriting an Access 2003 application into ASP.NET.  
My goal right now is to write down the steps/tasks that it would take to convert the application into ASP.NET
using Visual Studio 2010 with C#.

The application imports txt files into internal Access tables (from mainframe downloaded files).  
The application creates 3 types of reports.
1) it creates reports in Access Report Writer
2) it creates reports in Access Report Writer that are converted to PDF files.
3) it creates reports in Excel.

The application allows the user to perform maintenance on internal Access tables.

The application generates emails to particular users with PDF files as attachments.
I was thinking that instead of emails, the email recipients could go to a link to access the reports intended for their particular department.
I realize that I have not given manyask details.
As part of the rewrite I planned on using Sybase to store and retrieve the data.

Can you think of some of the tasks I should include in my project plan to rewrite the application from Access 2003 to ASP.NET?

Beyond the selection of which database to use (sybase vs sql server) I'm trying to write up a list of the tasks I could break down the project into, so that I can give the user a rough estimate of how long it would take to complete the rewrite of the Access application into ASP.NET.
