The link above shows how to store and retrieve connection information, and how to create DAO table links.

Once you've done this, you can then "import" data from those linked tables like this:

Currentdb.Execute "SELECT * INTO MyLocalTable FROM MyLinkedTable"

Note that "MyLocalTable" cannot exist. If it does, you'll get an error, so if you need to remove the table first,  run this:

Currentdb.Execute "DROP TABLE MyLocalTable"

Then run the SELECT INTO statement.
