Using VBA to "Connect" to another Database

I have a database called "TEMP"

On Opening the "TEMP" Database, I need to use VBA :
a) to connect to another database called "PMF"
b) the PMF database requires a password on opening called "allow"
c) to link 5 Tables in the PMF Database ... Table1,2,3,4,5
Next ... I need to set up some forms & queries in my Temp database
which will access data from the PMF database. Do I need to create any
indexes in this TEMP database of mine or will this TEMP database
automatically use the indexes within the PMF database.

Thx & Best Rgds,
Prakash.

The TEMP database will use the primary key of any table in the PMF
database. If that is not what you want, you have to create a query in the
TEMP database to read a PMF table in the order you want.

Hi all, Is it possible to have two connects in the same rexx script to different DB's?

Hi all, I am accessing data from an Oracle database via a connect string. I got into the situation where I wanted to write my SQL select statement to do a join between a local table sitting in my MS Access (2003) database, and an external Oracle table. But I realised I had no idea how to write the SQL. It appears that the whole SQL command gets passed to Oracle, not giving me any visibility to my local tables, is that correct? I know...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
