I'm running SQL Server 2005 Express.
I attached an Access mdb.
It shows it to me under linked servers.
When I do a simple Select * From AccessServer...Tbl I get a message Executing Query but nothing happends. The table is only 25 rows and this went on for an hour before finaly cancelling. And when I pressed Cancel Executing Query it went on for a while until I finaly shut down server management.
