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?
