    Unanswered: linked tables and dao recordset


    i'm switching my access db to use linked tables and mysql as a backend.

    But since i'm using linked tables my vba code (with some custom querys) is not running anymore, any idea what could be the problem?

    With no code to look at and no explanation of what the problem actually is, I doubt anyone would have an idea.

    Perhaps you could detail the actual problem just a little more than not at all, perhaps someone can help?!

    When you link a table to a backend such as MySQL or SQL Server, a lot of times the table links in as "dbo_xxxx". You may need to rename the linked table after linking it in or redo your coding to capture the dbo_.

    I personally create all my MSAccess tables as dbo_xxxx in anticipation that when I eventually link in the actual SQL Server tables, I won't then need to rename the linked table or redo all my code.

    Otherwise it could be a multitude of other problems (your code, permissions, etc...) and as StarTrekker stated, you'll need to give us more info.
