I have a linked server set up in Microsoft SQL 2000 Server. When I open up the tables in the Linked Server section under security, I see all my tables, but can't go further than that. How do I perform queries onto the data so I can view the actual data records?

This is the properties set up in the linked server:
Linked server: SWDATA
Provider Name: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Driver
Product name: Demo Files
Data source: ODBC;DSN=Demo Files;RemotePort=20222;SERVER=NotTheServer
Provider string: DRIVER={AcuODBC Driver};SERVER=NotTheServer
