Hello all,

I have an Access 2007 database that has all linked SQL tables and reports.  I need to convert this I believe first to 2010 then what is the best way to convert this to the later version of Office?   I assume I need to purchase Office 2013 so I can use a local "in-house" SQL database for connecting to?   I don't want to use SQL Azure as I think performance would be degraded.   Then the database has queries using the linked tables and then reports lots of them.   Can this be converted to Access 2013 easily will the reports convert?

The SQL express versions may be all that you need if you want to convert them to sql server database? Otherwise simply open the file then save and publish in the newest format.

We have already SQL server and the database.  We also have an access 2007 database with all linked tables to this sql db.   Will Office 365 allow to upgrade this and it would keep all the linked tables in access as is and queries and reports?   i dont want to upgrade the sql db side thats going to run locally in sql 2012 not azure.   i heard maybe a plugin or something
