I am pretty good with Access, but I do not know anything about SQL. We are entertaining the idea of moving our data to a cloud and I need to know how to convert my Access backend DB to SQL. which version of SQL will I need to use to do the conversion and will also work in a cloud environment. I also would like suggestions on SQL hosting services.

Thank you!

One possibility is to "upsize" the Access DB to SQL. It is relatively easy and painless if you follow their guidelines - see here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/move-access-data-to-a-sql-server-database-by-using-the-upsizing-wizard-HA010275537.aspx (for example, you should have a unique index on each table you want to migrate to SQL).

I have never done this with Azure, but I would imagine that the process would be similar. Googling found this: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ssma/archive/2011/04/13/migrating-access-jet-databases-to-sql-azure.aspx
