I used Mgmnt Studio to create a Linked Server which "links" to an Access mdb.  ( I think)

How do I create a view in an Access ADP to a table in the Linked Server.
How do I create a view in another SQL database to a table in the Linked Server.

I currently have this SQL statement which does not work.

SELECT TRACKDATA.cstrackdata.dbo.tbljob.*
FROM TRACKDATA.cstrackdata.dbo.tbljob

Trackdata:  Name of Linked Server
CStrackData:  Name of MDB file
tbljob:  Name of table in the mdb

I tried with / without the dbo

I have not done anything with DTC (ie have not turned it on or off in any way)
