Adding Table to Access Split Database

I have an Access 2007 database that is split into a front / back end.  I needed to add another table to the back end, and make the table available to a drop-down list box on a form on the front end.  I've added the table to the back end, but I cannot seem to get it to show up through the linked table manager.  I've tried several approaches, but to no avail.

Thanks for the help..

You have to Link the table first ... before it will show up in the Linked Table Manager ... which only shows tables already linked.

Closing the question myself and getting a solution from another member at pretty much the same time was purely coincidental.  It appears that the two events happened at about the same time.  Didn't mean to be unfair to a member...
