That makes sense. I'm kind of leaning toward the move-the-data-first approach, so I can compare the functionality of the two systems.

This particular app is local-access only (although if my planned conversion pans out, there are a couple of other network-aware (ie - multiple clients, one db) apps in my sights...).

I wouldn't have the ability to put stuff up on the intranet (that's reserved for "real" developers, sigh).

Update:My twitchy fingers had toasted the first paragraph.

    :-) Keep the faith! It's so easy, it's fun. I just made a presentation on my work that puts out graphical web pages from a 1.2GB MySQL database, and I've already had inquiries about it from other divisions of the Labs clear across the base. Pretty stuff sells almost as well as sex!

    I see I've been downvoted several times for my initial answer to you, and the tool they're describing is probably neat, but very few Access databases I've ever sucked up are complicated enough to require any more juice. Of course, I used to think hand-crafting assembler code was fun... ;-) :D
