ODBC Call Failed - Numeric Value Out of Range error when linking to an Oracle table

I am linking to a Oracle table via ODBC.  The Oracle table has  well over 300,000,000 records and am getting the message ODBC Call Failed - Numeric Value Out of Range (#0).  Interestingly other tables that have less than 100,000 records I have no issues with the ODBC link to an Oracle table.

The other item to note is I previously linked this table (the table that now has >300M records) years ago in a different database so I went and opened the database and had no problem opening the table or running queries against this table.  I am able to see the most recent data.  However, if I try to refresh the link I get the same error ODBC Call Failed - Numeric Value Out of Range (#0).  

If the error is due to volume issue would a Pass-Thru work as I only need recent data...

Pass through queries are generally the best way to go..  Problem is if you can get in to SQL Server (DTS Package) or TOAD or a tool that supports Oracle better..  You will have much better luck.  Problem with  Access is that it is very data hungry in the sense even though you may ask for say 1 or 2 records in a tables that has 1000's Access wants to pull across everything..
