Thank you all in advance!

We have a linked table in MSACCESS. It is linked to a data source hosted by Smartsheet. While I am able query the table in MS ACCESS and pull back real time data, I am not able to see the table when creating an ODBC source in SSIS. Thus, I am unable to import realtime data to SQL. However, when I make a "static" copy of the table, I can see the table from SSIS no problem...except the data is not current.

How can we keep the data in the static table current without setting off MS ACCESS notifications? Since the static table (the copy of the linked table) has a key, Running append queries against the Static Table will generate notifications each time a macro kicks off the append. I understand their is way to write some vb code to pull this off but am not clear on how. Do I create vb code for the append query or for the macro kicking off the query...or both?

Thank you all in advance!
