I want to be able to produce reports straight from SQL but have the user enter into a form which updates the sql table as at the moment they are doing it with access. Can anyone advise the best way to do this or what I will need to this? Many thanks if anyone can point me in the right direction.

So you want to use SSRS reports to distribute data stored in SQL Server but use Access to allow user input?Pretty simple:
1 - Create the database on SQL Server with all constraints, PK-FK, security settings etc.
2 - Create Access database and create linked tables rather than 'local' tables.
3 - Create Access forms for input.
4 - Create SSRS solution.
5 - Test.
6 - Test.
