sharepoint linked table

I have a sharepoint linked table

tbl_Dashboard

In that table is a field called:  Seller_name - it is being linked as a "Number" datatype.
It is a field in sharepoint that is a lookup field type. bound to column1

When i query that data it shows the actual text.
When i try to append this data to table in access, it shows up as a number ?

I need the actual value in the append query not the numeric value..

Thanks

You need to either join to the table that defines the ID and get the text value from there or use a query that joins the table you are using to the master table.  The procedure is the same as it would be if the BE were Jet or SQL Server.
