New twist on "too many databases" error?

I have a database in A2003 format that's giving me this error, but it's
not the same situation I've been reading about on here. In my
development copy, I have imported copies of the backend's tables, and
everything works fine. I can also compile the database like this, and
it works fine. However, as soon as I get rid of these copies and
instead link to the real data, I get the "can not open any more
databases" error. Why would it make a difference?

I have a lot of saved queries as the data manipulations I need are
pretty complicated (for me) and I need to build on other queries to get
to the final product. If this is the problem though, why would it only
show up when I used linked tables instead of imported ones?

Any thoughts or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

"Too many databases" does not literally mean "databases" but can be taken to
mean "Too many connections to tables". Connections to tables primarily come
from queries, aggregate functions and linked tables. When you imported
copies of the backend tables, the only connections you had were queries and
aggregate functions. Linking to the backend tables created connections to
tables. These additions caused your database to exceed the max allowable
connections and you get the error. You are going to need to review the
design of your database and try to reduce the connections to tables.

Connections come from aggregate functions?

You are nothing but an OBSESSED, egocentric A$$ just like your pal Arno R.
You need to also take the advise that was given to Arno R by a poster not
too long ago and grow up and get a life. We don't need the likes of you and
Arno R in our newsgroup! Just get lost and quit filling our newsgroup with
your slanderous
garbage!!!!!!

Steve, it is certainly nice to see someone who can let adverse comments
roll right off their back. It is too bad you are not one of those
"someones." Do you have an idea that this kind of rant is likely to _help_
you get customers from the newsgroup?

You are welcome!!

BTW, the clarification about the A$$s was also legitimate! Arno R does not
make any contributions to this newsgroup but is driven by his obsession to
be the champion of the newsgroup when INDEED all he is doing is showing all
newsgroup readers that he is just an egocentric A$$!!

I have a report that uses several subreports. The report looks fine in print preview, but when I send it to the printer, I keep getting this message "Cannot open any more databases." This happened when I add the last subreport. Is there a limit on the amount of subreports you can call from a report? If so, any work-arounds? There is a little code behind the report, but nothing using recordsets.
