Hey guys-
I have some queries that users need to resolve some problems.  
I get the error after trying to link to a sql server table with access.
The error is

The operation failed. There are too nay indexes on table 'Table_name', delete some of the indexes on the table and try the operation again.

Anyway around this without deleting some of the indexes?

Thanks everyone

Looks like it's an Access limitation that only allows a maximum of 32 indexes per table.

Btw, why do you need more than 32 indexes?

I don't have a clue why this table needs to many indexes.  It's part of a transactional application.

Might not be a bad idea to reach out and touch the technical owner of the table, smack them upside the head*, and ask them why the eff they need 32 indexes on a table.
