In the database with the copied form select File then Get Extrernal Data then
Link Tables... When the Link window opens, find the database that contains
the table to which you want to link and select it and then select the Link
button. Voila. Your form should see the linked table.

I have an Access 2002 program that I install using Wise. The first thing my program does when a front end is opened is re-link, then it checks the version and if needed upgrades the backend. My problem is that I have a new front end version upgrade that creates several new tables in the backend and then links them. So when the program opens up it checks the version in the backend and if needed creates new tables & new links. Now when...
