Front end with variable back end data sources?

Front end with variable back end data sources?

Front end with variable back end data sources?

I have one good front end that does everything I need.  I have 30 + clients, each of whom has its own set of data which I can link to.  All data sets are identical.

I want to store each client's data set in a different directory and open the database with a menu or form to choose which data to use.

I can't think how to do this.  Any tips, please.

RE: Front end with variable back end data sources?

It sounds as though the solution will depend on the language and environment. I could give you an answer for VFP and SQL under Windows but it won't work for Java and MySQL under Linux. You might find a more useful answer in one of the specific language forums.
