We have a working application that is written in an Access Data Project running on a microsoft SQL server. The application includes approximately 45 forms most with little or no code behind them and 38 reports. The application has 8 stored procedures and 10 views. We have merge replication setup on the application.
The application is designed to allow users to collect data thoughout their home areas and at night synchronize with the main SQL server via the internet.
This project includes 3 parts.
1st Convert the front end from an Access Data Project to VB.net
2nd Convert the backend from MSSQL to MySQL 5.0
3rd Create installer package so that the application can be installed on a machine
