You probably missed the DSN...Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> ODBC Data Source Administrator (Probably 32 bit -- i you are missing it -->syswow64\odbcad32.exe) -- User or System DSN

Actually, you are far better off using DSN-less connections.

You could also have an issue with the other computer not having the appropriate SQL Server driver installed.

There is a mention for linked tables....even there is the trickery for DSN-less there is the need for correctly setting up the connection 1st time...
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

ok weird, the table will OPEN when i right click  ,,,,and select "Open"....but not when i double-click ??
John TsioumprisSoftware & Systems EngineerCommented:
Well the obvious thing is to check your mouse double click speed...if that doesn't helps then i guess its time to uninstall Access and reinstall it...
