Access 2013 - 2 mdb files Main and lookup.  Mail uses lookup for drop down boxes.  I would like to merge them back into 1 mdb with out having to rewrite all the code and queries.

Can this be done ?

are they attached (linked) tables?  If so, then your code doesn't need to change.  Detach the tables and import the tables with their original names.  Your application shouldn't know the difference.

No.  The queries get to the tables by name.  If the attached tables have the same name as your current tables, they should function the same.
