When I export and link my tables from Access 2007 into Sharepoint, all of the lookups disappear. For example, a filtered lookup (query) for values of type number meeting a certain criteria, only show up in Sharepoint as a column of type number and uses a text box rather than a drop down displaying multiple values returned by the filtered query. What can i do to solve this?

Tables that use a query to lookup values do not transfer the query when moving to SharePoint.  If you use a value list for the lookup in your table, that list will be transfered, but not the results of a query.  Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the transfer process.

Here's an article that goes into more depth about the limitations of transfering tables from Access to SharePoint: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/export-a-table-or-query-to-a-sharepoint-site-HA001230314.aspx
