I have an SQL Server 2014. I created a Linked server from Pervasive. How can I see the tables of the Linked Server in Microsoft Access 2007?

I don't think you can. The only way to get data from them would be a passthru query that executes a stored procedure on the SQL Server and returns records.

Hello Simon. So how can I connect a new database created in SQL to talk to the Linked Server within it? I just want to pull records from the Linked Server to Access.

I'm not sure what Pervasive is but in the past I have done this through ODBC connections. I would create an ODBC connection to the sql server on the local machine that will run the MS Access front end. I can then import certain tables and link any table in any query as if it was local to the database.  I can manage the linked tables in MS Access using Database Tools->Linked Table Manager

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

1. Create a stored procedure in SQL that does a SELECT from the linked server (using either 4 part notation or the Openquery method)
2. Define a passthru query in the Access database that executes the stored proc.

Or
1. take a snapshot the data from the linked server into a table in the SQL server.
2. Then you can use the resulting table as a linked table from Access.

The Wiki page for Pervasive suggests that it does offer various drivers (ADO.NET; ODBC v3.51 and JDBC 2 for Core, Level 1, and Level 2; and OLE DB), so you may be able to access it directly, rather than via SQL Server, as OriNetworks suggests, if it is on your LAN.

Simon, the database is on the server. Is it possible to connect on access on a client computer without creating an ODBC connection in the client pc?

Joyv23, you still have the issue?
Anyway, I think you will always need to create an ODBC connection in the client PC.
