I am trying to connect to an SQL table in Access using DSNLess Connection string for Linked table.  Note multiple user will be access this database so setting ups a DSN connection for a linked table will not be sufficient.  What am I doing wrong:

Server name = SQL-NWSS-007\AUB1
Database name = FTVI_DBMS
SQL Table Name dbo.TA_AirplaneInfo

Public Function LinkODBCTable()

Dim db As Database, tdf As TableDef
Dim strConnect As String
strConnect = "ODBC;SERVER=MySQLServer;UID=sa;DRIVER=SQL" & _
Set db = CurrentDb()
Set tdf = db.CreateTableDef(Name:="dbo_TA_AirplaneInfo", Attributes:=dbAttachSavePWD, SourceTableName:="dbo.TA_AirplaneInfo", Connect:=strConnect)
db.TableDefs.Append tdf

End Function
