Synchronize MS SQL linked table and a local table

I have a several tables linked to a MS SQL Server. How do I synchronize a MS SQL linked table and a local table?  I want to do this so when I am not going the have an internet connect I will still be able to view the data. I will not be editing or entering data into the local table.

Take a look at replication. This is what it is designed for.

also, have a look at the "tsi synchronizer":

Using the synchronize method:
Database.Synchronize pathname, exchange

the synchronize method syntax has the following parts.

Database an object variable that represents a database object that is a replica.

Pathname a string that contains the path to the target replica with which database will be synchronized. The .Mdb file name extension is optional.

Exchange optional. A constant indicating which direction to synchronize changes between the two databases, as specified in settings.  

Example:

Sub sendchangetoreplicax()

   dim dbs as database

   ' opens the replicable database
   set dbs = opendatabase("yourdatabase.Mdb")

   ' sends data or structural changes to the replica.
   Dbs.Synchronize "yourreplica.Mdb", _
      dbrepexportchanges

   dbs.Close

end sub
