Hey everyone,

I'm trying to link a table from SQL server 2005 to access.
The problem is that when I want to "link ODBC database", and create a .dsn to access the database on the server, then when I'm ask to choose what I want to link, I don't have access to the tables, but only the views.

Does anyone have an idea why ?
Thanks in advance
