I would like to query a Teradata, ODBC Connection, from MS Access.  I have the Teradata query.  I don't know if setting linked tables is required; I would prefer to just use the query.  I would just like to paste the query, set the connection and obtain the results of the query from Access- if possible.

If this "query" is a "view", you may be able to bring it into Access.

If not, then you will have to link to the queries Table(s) and re-create the query in Access.

Thanks for the post.  Sorry for the delay in responding.  The query is not a view, but does use views instead of tables.  
Just to clarify, would I need to link to all of the views in access to create the query in this situation?  I was hoping that I could have access link to just one view- since the query uses many views.

To keep things simple, a "View" is basically a query.

So if you have one View that contains all the data you need, then yes, you can link to that one view, and create as many queries (in Access) based on that view.

I can not modify the view in Teradata.  I just have user rights in Teradata.  For me the view in Teradata is pretty much like a table since I can't change it.
Getting back to what we discussed, would I still need to create a link to all of the views or should just one be sufficient?  I was hoping that I could have access link to just one view and then have it connect to the other views by itself.  Is that possible?

Again, if the one view has everything you need, then you only need to link to that one.

If you need "related" data that is stored in other Views, then you will need to link to those views as well.

As far as I know you cannot "Connect" a veiw to another view with a linked table (View) in Access.
