    Cant locate backend (W2K)

    I've moved my database to a different PC which has Access W2K on it, and when I open the front end I get a message which tells me that 'database is not a valid path make sure the path name is spelled correctly and I'm connected to the server....

    I've looked through the Properties, Tools, Help, etc. etc. all without locating the place to change the location of the backend database in the frontend. Its got to be pretty obvious but I haven't been able to find it. Anyone know where I should look? TIA.

    Open the tools, linked table manager menu. Any tables listed there are linked which means they are not in the front end file. You must re-point the links to the new location. If the back end was on a network, you must find that location and refresh the links in order to get it working. Select all of the linked tables and find the back end database file. Keep in mind that there may be several "back ends".

    Thanks,
    Mark
