I am new the whole idea of back end tables.

I have added a table to my back end database. I can't seem to find it on my front end. I tried re-linking the front end and it still doesn't appear. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks!

Yes.  You will need add the link to that table.

1.  Click on the External Data tab above the Access Ribbon
2.  Select "Access" from the "Import" portion of the ribbon
3.  Browse to and select the file that your backend data is in
4.  Select the "Link to the datasource by creating a linked table" radio button
5.  Click "OK"

This will add your backend table to your front-end as a linked table (the datasplitter does this for you automatically when you split the application).
