Changing table design in .adp file

Hi all.

I need to add a field to a table in an Access .adp file as well remove a field from another table. But I don't know if I need to do that from within the .adp file or on the SQL Server 2000 database?

I've never worked with .adp files, I usually work with a .mdb file and the tables (which are on SQL Server) are linked into the Access database.

Thank you in advance!

You can do it through Access; an adp is a native interface directly into SQL (just like SSMS is).

Oh ok, so once I add a field to a table or delete the field from a table it will automatically appear in the database on SQL Server?

Does this also apply when I create a table in the adp file, will it automatically show up in SQL Server?

Yep and yep.   From within Access, it's just like you were working inside SQL Server Management Studio.

Might want to do a quick read of the following, which gives you an overview:
