Howdo Murray, have u not already done that?

U got code that converts linked table already, if u remember, it created I_ <<tablename>>

And what about the linked text files?

Regarding the newly created tables, if u want to remove the linked table and rename it to that linked table, u wont then be able to get your daily updates

Hi rockiroads. You are right. You did already help mw with that, but it has been a long day and it slipped my mind. Trying to get an urgent job through, which is separate from the one that I asked you about.

Thanks for the help
