    I have a Dell Deminsion using MS Access 2002 to create my
    database. Recently purchased a Windows 2003 Server
    Enterprise edition. Want to migrate my database files over
    to my server.
    Questions:
    What is the best way for me to migrate my
    application from the PC to the new MS-2003
    Server?

    Can I just move the "data files" for my
    MS-Access application from the PC to the
    new MS-2003 Server?

    Do I have to run a conversion script?

    Do you have a list of Frequently Asked
    Questions (FAQ) that I can refer to regarding
    a migration such as this?

    Can you send me a document (or refer me
    to a document) that clearly explains how
    to do what I need to do. I want to make
    sure that I move ALL REQUIRED FILES and
    DO NOT LEAVE ANY SPECIAL MS-ACCESS DATA
    FILES BEHIND ON THE OLD PC.

    It seems it is an Access-related question. I suggest you post this question
    to the following newsgroup since they are the experts in Access and will

    Thank you for your understanding.

    I would like to provide some info on system side for your reference. Before
    you perform the migration process, please read the following articles
