NOLOCK is only MS SQL Server syntax, and cannot be used in access queries..

This where I have put it in the other SQL queries

SELECT scheme_opdetm.*, scheme_opheadm.order_no
FROM scheme_opheadm(nolock)
 LEFT JOIN scheme_opdetm ON scheme_opheadm.order_no = scheme_opdetm.order_no
WHERE (((scheme_opheadm.order_no)="947579"));

so, you create a plain query in your access, on plain access tables?
or is this a PassThrough query to sql server tables?

if its plain access query ... NOLOCK cannot be used.
