I've been an Access Developer for many years creating SQL backend and Access
frontend programs for many companies.  My question is this:  Can someone
speak to the pros and or cons of moving many of my projects to Visual Studio
/ .Net  environment.  Access is such a user friendly tool as an interface to
SQL and also for forms and reporting, my customers are satisfied but I'd like
to know if I need to take it to this level.  Obviously the primary benefit is
moving to web environment but beyond that I'd like someone to expound on this
subject.
I am neither for or against developing in this environment and have some
Visual Studio and .Net experience.

thanks
