I have a database called Contract Review. I split the dbase (tables out ) . I now want to link them in (code) when the database opens. Not sure of the code . This is a multi user dbase and I'm hoping this will speed it up.

Hey MX, I'd like to think that our free J Street Access Relinker code will become the new defacto standard.  And no tweaking necessary.  :)

And yes, the ODBC comment is throwing me off too.  Spikemom, if you are just linking to a split Access back-end, you don't need ODBC.  It's just a linked table that you set up the first time in Linked Table Manager.

Cheers,
Armen
