Splitting Table Problem

Splitting Table Problem

Splitting Table Problem

I have a table with 70+ fields that I need to split into two separate tables with approx 35 fields in each.  Using the table Analyzer allows me to only add 15 fields max in a table.  Is there a way to split the tables and MAINTAIN all links and lookups in the forms, reports, etc.  Thanks for any help.

RE: Splitting Table Problem

Hi Bwalls:
When I used the Analyzer the first time I was very discouraged by what it wanted me to do! Some wise guru on this forum told me something like: "When the Analyzer is right it's right, but when it's wrong it's wrong."
Why let the analyzer dictate what your tables should look like? MUST you split the tables? You can have 255 fields in a table, I think. The Analyzer thinks my forms all have too many fields. It's been a long time since I got a check from the Analyzer.
Best of luck
