I did like you said. I was afraid it would cause problems with queries to temporary delete the relationships etc, but it seems to have worked fine.

I am sorry Bradleys I didn't see your post. But, deleting the relationships and the old table, importing and relinking as Capricorn1 suggested went pretty fast.
