Relocating Backends - Need quick method to update the Front Ends

Relocating Backends - Need quick method to update the Front Ends

Relocating Backends - Need quick method to update the Front Ends


I'm relocating several backends to new locations. As you know, the front ends will require their linked .mdb tables redirected to the new locations. The only thing that is changing is the drive letter.

Does anyone have a solution/code which would replace the drive letter of all of these table locations, rather than me doing this all manually? Every front end has multiple backends that need to be reconfigured, so it is quite a timeconsuming process.

Using Access 2002.
