Fogbugz database indexes on fogbugz.Bug

I was hoping to write some reports using the instructions outlined in the using Access with Fogbugz documentation ( )

Unfortunately, MS Access is puking as there is apparently a limit on number of indexes assigned to a given table.

In this case, Access' limit is 32, and the table has 60.

Are all 60 indexes needed (ie, do I need to use something other than Access) or is there a problem with my table?

I can post the list of indexes if anyone wants/needs to see them.

Hi Joey,

JohnFx suggests using a view on the Bug table so you don't have to remove any of the indices:

Thanks for the update, that worked perfectly.

We run a MySQL database, and I used the following sql to create my view (for anyone else that might use it)

create view vwBug as select * from fogbugz.Bug;

I was then able to import/link that table into Access.
