I am writing a query to an SQL server linked table. I want to run a simple delete statement. The problem is i get an error saying "Must Use dbseechanges with openrecordset when accessing a table from an sql table using the IDENTITY column".
I do not have any problems viewing or adding records into this table.
I have checked ALL of my SQL documentation and can't find this anywhere.
Has anyone come across this before and/or knows what to do?

Yes, I have.  Simple add it as an option on your open recordset.  For example:
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(SomeSelectStatement, dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)

nice one.
What does this dbseechanges actually do though?
I am not sure this helps, but...

From Microsoft:
The dbSeeChanges option ensures that any newly added records that contain a default value in the unique index field are available in the current recordset.

so access gets bitchy if it cannot see the results, therefore stopping the query.

Makes sense i guess...
