Any way to adjust ODBC timeout in linked table properties?  I am trying to link a table from Teradata into an Access 97 Database.  However, the table is receiving "ODBC call failed Timeout Error".  Is there anyway to adjust the timeout seconds in the table properties similar to the way you can adjust the timeout seconds in a pass-through query to 32766?

  No.  ODBC Timeouts only apply to querydefs.

If the table times out when I try to open it, will it still timeout if I adjust the ODBC timeout in the query?

  No, it should not.  Simple enough to check though.  Just create a query on the table, then set the queries ODBC timeout value to something like 300 (view/properties).  Then try and execute it.
