    Hi Markus

    If I read this right, you want to connect to one or several PCs on a network where the source database is placed in C:Mansionsdorns.mdb. The answer is yes you can but it is easier to just create a share on the host PC, for this example called Mansions

    You can then use a UNC path to connect to the PCs in question in this manner:

    [PC1]Mansionsdorns.mdb

    [PC2]Mansionsdorns.mdb

    [PC3]Mansionsdorns.mdb

    ...

    [PCn]Mansionsdorns.mdb

    Replacing [PCn] with the networked PC's name

    HTH
