Here's the situation (Access 2002). Many of my agency's applications use linked tables (to SQL tables). Is there a way that I can "test" to see, table by table, whether or not a user has the correct DSN/ODBC connection(s) to access the table(s)? What I want to do is spin through each table, checking to see if it's accessible. If not, I want to generate a MsgBox, saying something like: "You do not currently have the correct DSN setup for table 'myTable'. Please contact the Helpdesk for assistance." I'd rather do that than have to trap an error in a critical routine somewhere else in the application. I can run this module right at startup, and let a (new?) user know that they need something setup before they can run the application. Any ideas would be MOST appreciated. Thanks!!
