Warning in Access

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.

From a previous question, I understand this is due to a limit that Access has built in. Is this limit just specific to the one query I am trying to run? This particular query is attached to 5 other queries. Does this limit trickle down to all the queries build on top of each other? Those 5 queries are build upon many other queries.

I am trying to figure out where to fix the problem. Do I go to the bottom, and address the many queries in the background. Or do I stay on the "top" and just adress this query relating to the 5 sub queries.

I really hope my question makes sense, but I doubt it!

Any info you can provide would be helpful.

Chris,

 The limit applies to everything Access is doing at the moment.

  Five sub queries is a lot....maybe show us what your trying to do and what your tables look like and we might be able to optimize it.

and BTW, in general, you should avoid building query on top  of query on top of query.   Really you should only nest one level deep.
