Need Access 2003 to edit SQL tables that have BigInt

Need Access 2003 to edit SQL tables that have BigInt

Need Access 2003 to edit SQL tables that have BigInt

(OP)
I am kind of in a pickle here.  I really only know Access to do my update queries however the developer of one of our software packages updated a lot of the tables to include a BigInt column in a lot of the key tables.  This is not something that I can change.

I know I can do views easy enough to see the info I want, but I need to be able to add and change records.  Is there any way I can do this?

(The bigint on the tables is just being used as an auto counter so I do not need to see it at all)

RE: Need Access 2003 to edit SQL tables that have BigInt

I don't have any issues with BigInt columns in 2003 - Access treats it as a text field. (And allows me to update it).

If it's not the id field, just don't use it in your queries and updates.

RE: Need Access 2003 to edit SQL tables that have BigInt

(OP)
I believe my issue is because the developers of the tables have set the BigInt field as the Primary Key.  This causes all the fields to show up as #Deleted.

Try unlinking and relinking the tables.

(If that doesn't solve it, go kick some developer butt.)
