Linked Table Manager -- skip tables with errors

in the Linked Table Manager, skip tables with errors and continue linking with all in the list -- leave the problem tables checked and uncheck the tables that were successfully linked.

At the request of Microsoft, I am creating a new suggestion to separate the multiple ideas from the suggestion here:

http://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop/suggestions/10129782-linked-table-options?tracking_code=2f58832dad1aa8b9e83d9230087106c8

so if you voted on that one, remove your vote and vote for this instead, if this is what you want. Thank you

        Would vote for this if I had any more votes. Also the resizable linker window would be appreciated.

        When (if) we get to resize the dialog box, can Access please remember the new size?

        Yay! Yes! Do skip errors but continue and tell us which tables linked and which did not. Make the path area MUCH wider (or at least let us control that dialog box size).

        it would also be nice to add, or remove characters to the beginning of each linked table name.

        For instance, when linking to other systems, all the names might begin with dbo_. One by one, we can rename them, but it would be awesome if the Linked Table Manager could do this for us.

        Likewise, we may want to ADD prefix characters to all tables coming from a particular database -- again, we can rename them one by one, or the Linked Table Manager could do that as well.

        Perhaps a textbox in the Linked Table Manager to add or remove prefix characters?

        Another suggestion is to make the dialog box RESIZEABLE.

        Thank you
