No, you can't link a linked table.

But you can link to multiple back end sources from one DB.

"Doesn't See FE Tables that are Linked To Excel"
You are linked to some Excel spreadsheets ... and the LTM does not see them?

Joe, the LTM in the front-end database doesn't see a linked table in the back-end database that is linked in from an Excel spreadsheet.
so: Spreadsheet > Back End Database > Front End Database  all links

Just to clarify, there is no need to link the Excel  spreadsheet to the Access BE.  It should be linked to the FE.
