I am trying to open a query and a warning pops up that stats "Cannot open any more databases". Then I can click OK or HELP.

Any idea what causes this? This particular query is connected to a large number of smaller queries. The other queries are opening with out any problem.

Thanks!

Try shortening the table names by aliasing them.  That may get you by.

Access has an internal limit of 2048 table references.  The limit floats a bit and sometimes you can eek out a little more.
