To prevent the owner of a table from being displayed

  1. Specify the following in mfdbcutil when loading the table. This indicates a blank owner.
    -o " "
    Note: There is a single space between the quotation marks.
  2. Set the IGNORE_OWNER variable to 1 (on, true, yes) in your configuration file.

    When set to 1, this variable removes the owner from the listing of the tables in applications that perform catalog lookups. The default value is 0 (off, false, no).

To have no owner appear in applications that perform table lookups, you must use both of these steps.

As an alternative, you may choose the name of the linked or imported table in Access by using Edit > Rename or by right-clicking the table name and clicking Rename on the pop-up menu.

Tip: Having the link in the form USER_NAME is useful in distinguishing between separate objects with the same name.
