You might ber able to do this indirectly using Excel. Have a spreadsheet that runs the query and then link the spreadsheet to the Property Tab Builder.
I figured out how to link to a query this morning. Like you said, linking to a table is not really very useful compared to a query.
1. Start by adding the controls you wish using the property tab builder.
2. Close the property tab builder and open the file using notepad.
3. Edit to point to your query. The query and the column name must be correct.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<GroupBox Label="Groupbox" PropName="Groupbox2" DefaultState="Expanded">
<Control Label="Caption_here" PropName="Name_Here" ApplyTo="Global" Type="ComboBox" UserDefineable="False">
<Data Table="qry_raw_material" Field="Material Type" Path="X:\Database\Database.accdb" SourceType="MSAccess" />
