I often query a read-only SQL Server 2000 database using MS Access. Some of the tables in this database have fields of type BigInt which Microsoft acknowledges Access cannot read properly. I started using MSDE to create some Client Server apps so I used it to connect to the server. Because the database is read only, I cannot save any of the Views that I create, so it seems as if there is no way to query the database using MSDE and Access Data Projects. I know with the SQL software you can right click on a table and select Query to pull data, but I don't see a similar feature with the Access Data Project files. Is it possible? If not, what software would you recommend for querying tables with fields of type BigInt. I don't have the budget for the full SQL software so that is not an option right now. Thanks.
