No, the underscore will not cause an error.
Yes, you can make sql queries against (presumably) linked SQL Server tables.

Note that those queries must use ACCESS syntax, and not SQL Server Syntax. You can use "pass through" queries to do this - pass through queries are defined in Access, but you also define a connection string to your SQL database. The Access database then "passes through" your query to the sql server without parsing.

Then perhaps you need to clearly define what you mean by "SQL queries" and "Program".
By SQL Queries, do you mean queries created in Access, based on linked SQL tables?
If so, post the SQL.

By "Program" do you mean "run" those queries?
You can certainly "Run" an Access query based on SQL Linked tables.
If you are asking if you can "Write/Create" queries in Access based on Linked SQL tables, then you will have to describe, in detail, what you need to do.
(possibly posting graphical examples)

But like zachvaldez asks, it is always best to post a clear example of what you have, and what you ultimately need to end up with.

For example, you never really stated what these queries are doing, or what type of queries these were:
Select queries, or Action queries, or Crosstab queries, Group By, ...etc

Not sure if any of this is even relevant, we just need a little more clarification.

Then I am sure that any of the experts here will be able to provide a more targeted solution.
