Link to Access database

Link to Access database

I need to link to an Access database I created in Access 97 and uploaded to an ftp server. I created a new ftp location and was able to see the directory in the link screen, but when I hit the link button I got the following message:

'C:\My Documents\ftp:\\site.com\database.mdb' isn't a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

The "located in" area only said ftp:\\site.com\database.mdb, does anyone know what is going on here and how to fix it?


RE: Link to Access database

I don't know how to fix it but I can almost guarantee that there is a general property for your Access session that is actually inserting C:\MY Documents\ in front of all file locations. You might want to check the Tools, options area or right-click, Properties for just about anything that you might see as a superset to the link. Good Luck!

RE: Link to Access database

Thanks! I'll give it a shot and see what I can come up with....
