I have a situation where a query that results in 1-15 records to be processed in an Access  2010 form,. It transmts 1.2 million records from SQL Server to the Access database engine and then throughs away all but the few that are needed.

If I replace it with a Passthrough Query and specify that passthrough query as the form's RecordSource, will the query be updateable so that the user can enter and change data in the rows of that query in the Access form?

By definition, pass through query cannot be updateable.
