Relinking a Data Source, Table Name refresh confusing

The prompt that you receive when relinking to a data source regarding relinking table names seems inconsistent and confusing. If you end up trying to relink a data source and choose the same data source as original, you do not get a prompt. If you choose a different source, you get a prompt which asks whether you want to relink the selected tables. If you choose NO then it does refresh the links to each of the tables. If you choose YES you get prompted for the name of each table. If you are relinking to the same source, you do not get the question about whether you want to relink the selected tables, but you are still prompted for the name of each table. Maybe some cleanup/clarification here as well as a “All OK” button to try to relink to each of the tables as named. After all if it cannot find a table, it will say Failed and you can individually relink to that table and rename as needed!

        good catch, Maria.

        Nice if messages only appeared to find a different BE for checked tables that couldn't be found in specified source -- and prompt was worded as such -- and the tables that couldn't be linked (or navigation canceled with Cancel button) to still be checked when done.

        Access Team, thanks for other great changes to the LTM -- expandable dialog box the best!
