Upsizing with the Trial-and-Error Approach

An initial test of the Upsizing Wizard lets you see how much work is in store to upsize your application. For a complex Jet application, the test drive might convince you to abandon a full-fledged upsizing operation and use SQL Server tables linked to your Jet front end. In this case, Chapter 19, “Linking Access Front-Ends to Jet and Client/Server Tables,” describes the quick and easy way to gain most of the advantages of an SQL Server back end.

If you don’t have a production Jet application to test and you’ve created the queries, forms, and reports used as examples in the preceding chapters in a copy of Northwind.mdb, you have a good starting point for determining what types of Jet objects the Upsizing Wizard can handle without modification.
