Is there any hashing in access linked table?

I mean..did the link table take data into access from ms sql.... ?

or it will directly connect to ms sql at runtime and manipulates data?

The data gets re-queried at run time.

Hello jaisonshereen,

A linked table can be imported into Access, and it can manipulate data if there are unique keys in sql or a timestamp. The connection is always alive as long as there is a link.

Regards,

Jim

jmoss111: So you mean...hashing is possible manually through coding ... and it can be imported to a access table from link table.... right?

if we double click and open data of a linked table in access that data is actually resides in ms sql not in ms access...right?

This question is already closed but there are much better (faster, less bandwidth) ways to Access than using linked tables.

Using linked tables you are basically using sql server in access like a file server or top half of the .gif illustration.
