Hi all, I've got a Front End / Back End database that was working just fine. One day i opened the FE to find that if I tried to open one of the linked tables from the database window, nothing happened (hourglass for about 2 seconds then nothing). I tried relinking the tables and got the same response. (Access even completely bombed out once with a Dr Watson failure).

Anyway I do not know how to solve the problem, and any help is...

However, when I run it from QA against the server itself (rather than from my local server against a linked server), it executes immediately. Similarly, if I run the same SQL command through an ODBC linked...

Using Access 2003 front-end, with SQL Server 2005 backend. I need to make the front-end application automatically refresh the linked SQL Server tables. New tables will be added dynamically in the future, so the front-end application must have a way to keep up with this (instead of manually linking them).
