Access query

Hi,

Ive created a Macro that does a couple of things in Access, due to the linked table being queried by multiple users, i often get the error OBDC call failed. I am scheduling this report to run over night, so am wondering can i increase the amount of calls into the linked table before it halts the macro?

Thanks
Seamus

There are some ODBC settings you can try to tweak. You didn't say what version of Access you're using, so I can't provide specifics, but this might help.

What does your macro do? If you're working with server-based tables, in almost every case you are far, far better off using standard VBA coding to do this (i.e. run SQL directly on the connection, create new connections, etc etc)

Thanks for that, im 2003

This is my DB, im quite a basic access user so i believe i am just querying the server tables, can you confirm?

Thanks
