    Ok, I'll bite. You're new to Access. Why do you want to determine the ODBC?
    That's a fairly advanced topic. Are you saying that you want to determine the
    source of linked tables? Doug's code works, but so does hovering your mouse
    over the linked table. (A tool tip pops up with the table link.)

    You can also launch the Linked Table manager and it will display the link source
    for all linked tables.

    Now, if you want to programmatically change the ODBC connection for a table
    or read and parse it, you're going to need to write code in a VBA module, which
    gets you back to Doug's suggestion. What do you need to do with this info?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
