This is about linked queries, not linked tables. With no linked tables, the Linked Table Manager is disabled.

I know how to see the connection of a linked query, linked to SQL Server:


"ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=PRODSERVER;DATABASE=proddatabase;Trusted_Connection=Yes"

I need to change the server name in the connection.

I tried in the Immediate window

CurrentDB.QueryDefs("create").Connect = "...test server name..."

but that did not change the connect property.

How do I change the connect property?
