Chapter 20. Client/Server Techniques > Proactively Preparing for Upsizing

Proactively Preparing for Upsizing

If you set up your tables and code modules with upsizing in mind, you can eliminate many of the preceding pitfalls. Despite the problems that upsizing can bring, the scalability of Access is one of its stronger points. Sometimes resources are not available to implement client/server technology in the early stages of an application. If you think through the design of the project with the possibility of upsizing in mind, you will be pleased at how relatively easy it is to move to client/server technology when the time is right. With the Access 97 Upsizing Wizard, which is designed to take an Access application and upsize it to Microsoft SQL Server, the process is relatively simple. The Access 97 version of this tool is available on www.msn.com. The upsizing tool for Access 97 performs a lot of the work involved in upsizing a database with just the click of a few buttons.
