Hi,

i am trying to edit MsSysObjects table in order to allow autolinking of table from  SQL-Server, how ever
i get following error message in a satusbar: "Control can't be edited it's bound to replication system
Column 'Connect'".

I have tried to set all the security premissions (tools/security) but that hasen't been any help
any ideas how to fix this?

I don't think you can edit System Tables, But what exactly are you trying to do? It can probably be solved som other way.

Not only can't you, but even if you could, you really don't want to.  Editing MSysObjects can mess up a database in a big way.  

As njelger said, I'm sure there is another way to do what you want.

Well hmm i have failed to create ODBC source which would allow automatic link to SQL server. It allways asks for username and password. Any solution for this would be much apperciated. SQL-Server uses mixed mode authentication.

This is the .dsn file that is created and used to link  i tried to add PWD line whit text editor, but when Access is restarted it fails to link to the sql server again.

[ODBC]
DRIVER=SQL Server
UID=login
PWD=password
Network=DBMSSOCN
WSID=server
APP=Microsoft Open Database Connectivity
SERVER=server
Description=Test1

To avoid the username/password prompt, you must specify it in the connection string of the tabledef.  This article:

HOWTO: Use CDao for Connections to a Secure Attached Table
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;186383

Give and example and outlines the steps for setting up the ODBC connection.  It was written for C++, but it still applies.

The user name/password must be in the connect string in the Access TablDef Connect property.  Specifying it in the ODBC setup is not enough.
