Upsizing from Access Data Type Problems List

Hi there,

I'm trying to come up with a definitive list of ACcess data types that
cause a problem when upsizing to SQL Server.

On the last occasion that I upsizzed, SQL Server had an issue with
smallDatetime and with Autonumbers.

I changed the smalldatetime to be datetime in access and that cured that
problem.

With the Autonumbers, I set them to be of type integer with identity set
to yes

I was wondering if anyone could tell me other access data types that
cause problems and also what their sql server match should be?

Hi everyone, I am using the Upsizing Tool in Access 2002 to upsize to SQLServer 2000. I am finding that the data type number (field size: double) when upsized is turned into a float type. What is disconcerting is that the upsizer appears to be adding data to the end of the value. What starts off as 283.456 ends up as 283.4560000000003 or...

Can anyone point me to any info on the pros and cons of upsizing small to medium size databases to SQL Server? If the user base is never going to be more than about 10, the app isn't totally mission critical and the record count will never get into the hundreds of thousands, is upsizing even worth considering? Any help is appreciated.
