Alter a SQL table

I used the MS Access 2000 Upsize wizard to create a Client/server
application. After the wizard ran, the original table names had become
the linked tables and then there were duplicates of the the tables
named xxx_local.

I realized later that I needed to add some fields to a table and
couldn't do that in Access (couldn't edit the linked tables). So I used
the Query Analyzer and created a script to add the fields to my table.
It looked fine in Query Analyzer, but back in Access the fields were
added to xxx_local and not xxx, the linked table. My forms and reports
are built on xxx, not xxx_local.

How do I do this correctly?
