Default migrating from access to SQL

Hi all.

I'm pretty new and still looking up on info on how to do this, and the following questions may be trivial to most of you here. but i need some advise from anyone who's familiar in these areas.

I'm currently working on an automated library system project, done with VB6 and both client and server running on Win 98. Presently, an Access2000 database residing on the server, is used and everything is working fine so far. My queries are:

1) I wish to upgrade the Access DB to an SQL database on a new SQL server. What major changes do I need to look out for in my VB codes? Is using the upsizing wizard for that DB enough?

2) Are there any compatiblity issues with regards to VB, if I were to change the OS platform for both client/server system. eg from win 98 to win 2000/XP..?

hope anyone can shed some light on these queries.
thanks.

Hi,

   I can't speak to the other VB specific issues, other than there are different connection and recordset issues, but just minor tweaking.

   I did find that using DTS on the SQL Server was better than using the upsizing wizard in Access, if you know what changes you will need to make.

   Not much help I'm afraid.
