I also use Access as a FrontEnd to PostgreSQL (we are migrating the backend).
The main problem is that all queries have to be written in PostgreSQL.
When joining linked tables in Access, performance is terrible ! I think I understand why, but some of my power-users would like to be able to create queries in Access and have no knowledge of SQL (so creating them in PostgreSQL is not an option).

Good to know !
I might give MSAccess2003 a try then !
