Cannot find the right table when connecting from Oracle to Access

Hi!

I have successfully managed to create a link to one specfic table in a database by using this way in MS Access 2007 but fail to do it for another one.


In both cases I use this way in MS access 2007. .External Data - more -odbc databse link to the data source by creating a linked table - data source for the machine. Then I select the source and click ok and get to a ODBC driver connect where I enter user name and  password.

Then the dialouge appears where I am able to pick tabels. For the database where I dont have all permissions to all tabels and views I get to pick the correct tables. However, from the database where I only have read right to one table I get a list of houndres of tables. The attached picture shows some of them.


Some start with: EXFS.SYS....
OTHERS WITH: LSLSYS.... OR  MDSYS..., PUBLIC...



It´s important to know that I can easily connect to the table with the same user name and password by using sql  developer.

My questions are as follows:

1. I am able to make this kind of connection if I only have read permissions to a table?
2. Is there any clue to which table I should access, because when I browse the long list I cannot find any traces of the user name I have nor the table name I have access to by sql developer.

Best regards

Marcus

The image atached shows only the PUBLIC account files.
Can you see any table that starts with other username account, that you supplied his password?
