MS-Access question

Hi,

I have a problem with replicating my database in Access97.
I have a table with a lot of indexes and relations.
When I want to replicate, Access97 adds 2 indexes.
It seems that there's a maximum of indexes in Access97.

Is it possible to change the maximum of indexes, or does anyone know how to solve my problem?

Thanks!
Nick

I don't know if the indexes are your problem...what exactly does it say...I have a database that has over 200 tables, I opened 1 of them up and it had about 25 indexes in it, if any other the others are like that then you have a different problem.  I checked a few of the other tables, and they all have indexes in them so theres probably 300 or more indexes in this database.  Of course 1 possibility for this happening with mine is that they are linked tables, but that shouldn't make a difference a table/index is still a table/index by any other name.

What is the error you are getting!!, how many tables/indexes do you have!! and what are you trying to accomplish (oops, that was just replication wasn't it)????

I just saw reference in a website that states Microsoft set a limit in Access to having 32 indexes, and one of these peoples tables has more than that (it's in a btrieve database), therefore Access cannot read it.  So, if you have any more than that, you're out of luck.   Sorry, MS doesn't suggest any work around except to cut down on the indexes.

Hi

I have a database with +/- 120 tables.  This database is used to link with another database with +/- 30 tables.

The error message I get when I try to create my design master is:
"Microsoft Access can't convert the database to a design master.  Cannot make the 'Table Name' object in Tables container replicable."

This table has about 24 relations and 6 indexes.

It works when I delete 2 relations.

I just confirmed with the system developers the company I'm with is working with, and they talked directly to Microsoft, it supports upto 32 indexes (and apparantly by the problems you're having, relations count as indexes), so the only solution would be to remove some indexes, if possible
