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

Pat,
"You need to either join to the table that defines the ID and get the text value from there"

That worked.

Thanks !!
