When linking to a SQL database from Access, the list of tables always includes dtproperties, sysconstraints, and syssegments. How should I [u]best</u> keep these system tables from appearing on the list?
It was already deselected. My understanding is that the option to which you refer applies only to items in the database window. The SQL tables above are seen during the linking process when you see the tables in the SQL database for which you have permissions. Most of the system tables do not show in the list, but for some reason those three always do. I could deny permissions to those objects, but why are those three different from the others?
