Using Queries with a Linked Database
Posted on 2013-01-10
I'm building an application that manages a large amount if imported data and is used by a number of users. I have split the tables out from the rest of the application in the usual way, with the "Back End" parked up on the server.
Unfortunately, at the request of the user group, I can't embed the various queries in the code - as is my usual practice. Instead, the query names are stored in a table and executed in a sequence managed within that table.
Equally unfortunate, however, is that this methodology requires all of the queries to reside in the BACK END .accdb. In addition, any Make Table queries that are executed break the links to the back end tables and replace them with the new tables in the client .accdb.
Both of these are a royal pain in the neck!
Is there a way around this, assuming that use of the "DoCmd.OpenQuery strQueryName" method is something I am stuck with?
