Too Many Indexes To Link

I am trying to link a Progress table into Access. However, the Progress database table has 41 indexes. I have even tried to import and get the same error - Too many indexes - . Is there a way to get around this? Currently I am importing to Excel then linking Excel to Access. The table is time sensitive so a live link is the best. Any ideas? Thanks

Too Many Relationships / Indexes
Sorry to add to the number of 'relationship' posts but a thorough search has failed to turn up anything similar to my problem.

I have a table tblSite
Each geographical site (defined by a PK 'SiteNo') in tblSite can contain multiple occurrences of a large number of types of geographical features (ie multiple 1-many relationships).

Eg each Site can contain
100 trees
10 ponds
5 streams
2 springs and so on.

I could have anything up to 50 or so different types of feature that are related on a 1-many basis to the site, linked by 'SiteNo'

Access prevents any more than 32 indexes per table so in practice that means that you can't have more than 32 relationships with referential integrity enforced on any one table. I thought that I was correct in having a separate table for each feature type and creating 1-many relationships to the central table. The fact that I can't have more than a certain number of relationships suggests that my structure is wrong.

I thought about having one large table with a 'feature type' field plus all the other fields required for each feature type but the info recorded about each feature type is different, leading to a large table with many fields, many of which would be blank. This seems to be un-normalized to me.

So, my question is twofold really.
Have I got my structure right? Is it one of those special cases (we all want to be a special case?) and if so, how do I get round it?
If not, where have I gone wrong?
I thought I was comfortable with my design but coming up against this limit has thrown me a bit and I'm not sure how best to proceed.

Too Many Indexes Error Message
I am a beginner when it comes to access. The project that I am working on is tracking Travel claims. The claims are submitted ever month for 4 years so I have created 48 tables for each month and tried to link them via the SSN. The member can also submit other claims during this period, ie supplementals (for reimbursements that were missed in the monthly) and Concurrent duty claims (for the member going to additional sites then where they are assign).

I have a

MBR tbl - that holds all the MBR's info (SSN, name, unit, city, state, POC, POC email and Remarks)

(48) Partial tbl - linked by the SSN.

(5) Suppplemental tbl - Linked by the SSN ( I need more of these but I started with 5)

(5) Concurrent tbl - linked by the SSN ( I will need more of these)

These are all one-one relationship.

How can I get this to work. I can upload a blank copy of this database.

Thanks for any help

Update Queries Vs Append Queries, Indexes?
This is a very simple problem most likely for the masses, but I am new to access. I have employees who enter will enter information about specific tests on electronics components into separate tables by a form. I know my method is poor, but this is how it works. I got assigned this database at my internship this summer because they ran out of thigns for me to do.....I've never even used access before, so as long as it works, they're happy. I have a form which which writes to a first table with 20 fields. I then have separate update queries which take the data in the first table and put it in all the other tables. Trust me, i know this is pretty much the opposite of the whole point of a relational database, but I am and was limited by time, for the size of the database they want, there was no time to learn about normalization etc etc. Sorry this is wordy, but THE QUESTION is......if they run multiple tests wtih the same information for some of the fields I have fields named "Run#, Unit#, Date" etc, even if there is records wtih the same information, hwo do i get it all to show. Right now, it seems to be rewriting over the same records. If they run 3 tests on unit 10 on August 1st, how do i get it so all those show up. I think its somethign wtih in the table, for the primary keys, changing the Index: No, Yes(Duplicates) Yes(No Duplicates) but I could be way off. Thanks, if the question doesnt make sense i'll try to rephrase it, I apologize I'm running on about 45 min of sleep:confused:

How Do I Get Rid Of This Link.

The current database I am working on I made it by copying the one I was working on originally. I just realized on the VB window that there is still some relation between them. Because, if I look at the tree on the left of the code window I see it says "GCB (miniGCB)", being GCB the one I copied, and miniGCB the one I am working with.

How can I get rid of the link with GCB?? I want the tree to just say "miniGCB".

Can't Link
I have a MySQL DB full of tables I exported from Access (2000). I want to create a new Access DB that links to the MySQL DB. I can connect to MySQL successfully with ODBC. When I try to link tables I select ODBC(), then choose the MySQL DB. Then nothing happens. I just have my list of Access tables. If I try to link to another .mdb I get a list of tables to link to. What am I doing wrong? I have the latest MySQL ODBC.

Link Pdf
Hello all,

I created a table and linked a pdf file to one of the fields, but when I created a form to display the table contacts, I could not see the attachment or icon or any reference to the linked object. The field in my access table is an OLE object.

Thanks for helping out.

How To Link FE To BE Using VBA?
I have packaged an Access DB (Split) as a run time solution so I can distribute to users without Access.

When I install it on a PC it runs.

If I move the back end to a network, the solution can't find the back end because it has been moved.

Access run time does not include the linked table manager in the toolbar.

Is there code in VBA where I can refresh the link between front and back end.

Ideally I want to write an error handler that will call a sub to prompt the user for the new location of the back end if it has been moved. Then have the user browse to the network location and click on the back end and store that location as a string. Using that string refresh the links.

Any ideas on that?
