Dynamic Input with Access Database - How to Chose the Table?

Deliverance
7 - Meteor

Hi all, I'm trying to use the Dynamic Input tool for an Access db but I'm not sure how to indicate the table name similar to how you'd add a sheet name if inputting from excel. Is there a way to do this for an Access db? I'm getting the same error as if you didn't indicate a sheet name when using excel: "No table chosen; Please select a Table from data source.

An Access table uses the same format as an Excel sheet.  The format is <FilePath>|||<TableName>

 

For example:

C:\TEMP\Database1.mdb|||Table1

I think for .accdb files you need to follow these instructions to get your system objects/a.k.a. list of tables to be visible:

then you need to have your batch macro read in each table:
