The Access system I am working on has this structure:

Main MDB
Branch MDB
Branch2 Visual FoxPro database

Main acts as a switch and the user can change the links to use other Branch databases.

Currently, the Visual FoxPro tables are linked to Main, and tables in Branch are linked to Main.

What I would like to do is put a password on Branch, and run all the linking through that table, preferably using ODBC.  But when I attempt to link Branch from Main, I can't see the VFP Branch2 tables.  Can you string links like this or is a direct link the limit?
