Access ADP Error Msg: "Cannot Find Column"

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi folks,

When double-clicking a table in my Access 2007 ADP front-end with a SQL 2005 backend, I receive this error message:

"Access cannot find column 'mycolumn.'  This column was recently deleted via SSMS, and I can open the table fine in SSMS.

I've tried closing out and reopening Access, to no avail.  I've also tried refreshing the data link properties, but that didn't work either.

Any suggestions?
