I work with files on an AS400. I have no control over the file structure. As a simplified example, the AS400 file structure is:

Table Name: CUSTOMER

(k)ACCT#.....DECIMAL ........ (8.0)
   FName ....CHAR................. 30
   LName.....CHAR................. 30
   Date.........DATE................. 10

The Access 2007 file structure is:

Table Name: tblNOTICE

 (k)Index .............  AUTONUMBER...
(fk)NACCT# ...........DECIMAL............0
     NoticeDate ......DATE ................10

What I want to do is send out notices to delinquent customers. The demographic info (name, address, date of first order, etc) is stored on the AS400. I keep a separate Access database that I use to send out notices. I want to set up a form that prints a delinquent notice and records the date the notice was created. I want the [NACCT#] to be automatically populated with the [ACCT#] from the AS400 table to create a 0ne-to-many relationship with the AS400 file. The [NoticeDate] will be entered by the user.

The problem: When I try to create a One-To-Many Relationship between the AS400 and the Access table I do not have the option to select REFERENTIAL INTEGRITY. How can I get REFERENTIAL INTEGRITY between the two files automatically?

  RI only can be applied within the MDB container (the tables must be local to the MDB file).   But you really don't need that.  You can create a relationship without RI enforced.
