Note: The information in this topic applies only to a Microsoft Access database (.mdb).

Important: If you create an MSysConf table, it must be set up properly or you will not be able to connect to the SQL database table at all.

If you are administering an SQL database that uses Microsoft Access as a front end, then you can create a table in your SQL database named MSysConf to help you control communication between the two applications. The MSysConf table has two potential functions:

  1. It can disable the feature that enables users to save the logon ID and password for a linked SQL database in the Microsoft Access front end.

  2. It can optimize how Microsoft Access performs background population of records during idle time by setting the number of rows of data that are retrieved at one time and the number of seconds of delay between each retrieval. Microsoft Access uses a default of 100 records that are returned every 10 seconds if you don't create the MSysConf table.
