Hi ALL, I am trying to write a macro that will run the Linked Table Manager and use the "Select ALL" option.  In a macro,  I am able to open Linked Table Manager by using the Action "RunCommand" and the Arguments "LinkedTableManager".  But I can't seem to figure out how to make it "Select ALL" and then select the "OK" button.  Any help would be MOST aprreciated!!

I dont know of any way, because that is open as modal, you cant even use sendkeys to select "select all"

If all you want is to pick another db then why not relink via code?

eg
how to relink http://www.mvps.org/access/tables/tbl0009.htm

how to prompt http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm

If you want to relink your tables to a new or changed database, you can use the code in the snippet. Set a reference to ADOX and use the ReLinkTables procedure, substituting your database path and table names. Or, you can delete the ReLinkTables procedure and use the ReLinkTable procedure from some other code you have.
