It has been a long time since I have worked with Access

I think there was a way to link 2008 sql server tables without having to create an odbc dsn on each client machine but maybe not???

Do these still work? They are for an older version.

It uses VBA functions to create a tabledef.  Example of building the ODBC connection string inline (source: link above)

    '//Use trusted authentication if stUsername is not supplied.
        stConnect = "ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=" & stServer & ";DATABASE=" & stDatabase & ";Trusted_Connection=Yes"

Review this post that I previously answered which is the same as your question.  It include the steps and  VBA code to create a DSNLess Connection.
