"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

I get it ... just checking.

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