Critical Status - Database-Oriented Issues Plus

It seems that everything has a critical status, especially when it comes to databases and software development! Here's a place for listing issues and ideas relating to database and development issues. I'll list problems and ideas mainly related to SQL Server 2005. Post your thoughts, advice or complaints! Later this year will be the 25th anniversary of being in the trenches of the IT industry. I specialize in database applications development. I'd like to share my experiences with everyone and learn of those of others. You never stop learning.

Linked tables to SQL Server

I have found on more than one occasion since migrating to SQL Server 2005 that if you have an ACCESS 2000 front end there can be an incompatibility of datatypes. Modify all ntext or text columns in SQL to nvarchar(MAX) as those types will no longer be supported. Also, modify bit columns to something like tinyint. Apparently, Access can't handle bit fields.
