The Microsoft Access Upsizing Tools 97, originally available in January 1997, was updated in late February to work with SQL Server 7.0. The update saves you the trouble of having to do a two-step upsizing procedure via Access 2000's upsizing tools. Download it from http://www.microsoft .com/AccessDev/ProdInfo/AUT97dat.htm.

Also, you can attend a half-day seminar on the accounting packages Solomon IV SQL Server Edition, SunSystems, Great Plains Dynamics CS+, and Platinum SQL Server, which run on SQL Server. For more information, contact TexSYS RD at 888-883-9797 or www.texsysrd.com/ SQL.
