The best way to see how it works is to look at the query log in the postgres back-end. My bet is that Access will send select/where-clauses and so on to the back-end, for each table, and then do it's join locally, on the subset of the data. Maybe it can work even smarter...

A previous message mentioned that MSAccess performs a join locally when
accessing a postgres database via the ODBC drivers (link files).
Does that mean that it sends the entire tables from the postgres server to
the Win computer and the query is actually performed by MSAccess?
