Default report without relationship

I make report in Access by create link with sql server.
sql server tables link is working with access.

Table fields like this.




In livelink tables three tablee are use. but in three tables
there are no field are similar with other tables.
No relationship with the table.

In this case How I can make report in ACCESS ?

some report not make by the livelink software.
I want to make report in ACCESS how ?.

Is the data actually related? If so, then create the relationship. You can do this two ways:

1. With the database window showing, click the Relationships button and link the fields. You won't be able to enforce referential integrity since it is SQL data, but the indexes will work.

And / Or

2. Create/modify the joins in the Query designer view. You can choose any of the different join types.

If there is really no relationship with any of the data, then either you don't want it related, or you are missing a junction table. You can create the junction table on either the SQL server, or in Access. I have an Access front end that links a SQL server database and an Access database with relationships in the front end this way.

Does this help?

thanks for your response.

1. I already create link the fields. but indexes not work.
   not retrieve data.

2. what about junction table ?

I could not understand ?

I create one table (junction) in access with same fields which
have in both table sql and access. I link junction table.
but it not work, not retrieve data.

any other idea ?

without relationship data should be retreive how ?
our actual data in sql server we could not make change in
sql server tables because main program base on sql server tables.
but few report could not make in sql server hence we
try to make report at ACCESSS how ?
