ODBC Linked Table Problem
Posted on 2004-09-03
I have an Access Database that has a linked table to an ODBC data source. The table has a field called RTCOST which is a Decimal field with a Precision of 9 and a Scale of 3, Decimal Places are set to Auto.
I can list the contents of the table but If I try to create a Make table query i.e take the contents of the linked table and dump it into an Access local table I get a Access error message which says : The decimal fields precision is too small to accept the numeric you attempted to add.
I've told the company who administer the database where the linked table comes from but they insist its correct.
Can anyone suggest a workaround
