Hi All,

I did try using the sample code from the ADO.net forum to link one
table, it is working fine. But, I got a problem when I tried to link
all tables (20 tables)... Please help, thank you....

Hi Oceania,

Maybe it is better what you want to archieve because that ADOX code you are
using is for me real not understandable anymore. (But as I see it, I think
it is incomplete, I see not any recordset or something other to get the data
in it).

So tell us what you try to do.

And I think there are not much people who want to learn that again.

Hi,

Some time ago I tryed the same thing. I had to refresh a whole bunch of
query's and table's in a whole bunch of Access-databases. I looked some days
on the internet for solutions, tryed really a lot, but nothing worked really
fine. I had some solution that for some reason didn't work with every
table/query, and I never foudn out why. I ended up doing this in Access,
hehe.

Maybe you can do something with my VB.NET code? Maybe you can find usefull
things in it or improve it?

If you findsomething that really works, can you post it please?

Pieter

Hi Cor,

This is what I really try to do:

I always have a front-end empty database namely dbtest, and I also
have a permanent back-end namely dbbend what contains about 20
tables. And, everytime the users open the application, it will create
the link from dbtest to dbbend. Then, these linked will drop when the
user logged out the application. Hope it make sense... Thank you..
