    Access2016: Linking SQL Server View

    I need to use SQL Server database View as Source for Access form (read only). I read, that unindexed Views Access can only read, so I created a read-only datasource - but it displays only tables (like the read-write one too)! How can I make Views available too?

    The query syntax is too complex to port it directly into Access, and I'm afraid it will be too slow when ported using interim saved queries.

    I have several SQL databases linked to Access project, and I searched the view in wrong DB

    How are you linking to SQL Server?
    I can link to SQL server views with no problems, both read only and where there is a PK field, editable.
    EDIT: I see your thread is marked solved so no longer an issue?
