I have split an Access 2002 db into front-end and back- end dbs using the Database Splitter. When I try to make a table design change in "Table A" in the back-end db (eg, add new field), I receive the message: "Property value is too large. (Error 3309)" However, if I go into the version of the db before it was split (ie, data tables are not linked), I am able to make table design changes in "Table A" without any errors or problems. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks.
