I'm not sure you can run pass-through queries that return something. I think
it's like an execute immediate in embedded SQL, i.e. no return values.

Also be very careful when trying to access this table from C or Basic.
Access itself passes the statement through to the original DB, but when
programmin the jet engine the statement is passed through to Access! So
don't be surprised if your performance goes downhill.
