In your query design you should just put the statement:

With Owneraccess

that will make the query run with the owner's access rights

Thanks cap, that explains how to set the run permissions for new queries, but is there a way to set the run permissions of the existing queries (other than setting the SQL string for each qeury)?

Function AlterQDef(strPerm As String)
Dim qd As QueryDef, sSql As String
For Each qd In CurrentDb.QueryDefs
    If InStr(qd.Name, "~") = 0 Then
        If InStr(qd.sql, strPerm) = 0 Then
            sSql = Replace(qd.sql, ";", "")
            sSql = sSql & " " & strPerm
            qd.sql = sSql
        End If
    End If
Next
End Function

to use
AlterQDef("WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION")
