Updating linked tables in Linked Table Manager. The path names to the old tables are too long to read in the provided window and I am unable to resize it to read them. Thus i am not sure what tables to re-link them to. Is there any way of viewing the full path names?

Go to Tools>Database utilities>Linked Table manager.

Here you can find Table name and full path of your database.

To show hidden tables go to Tools -> options -> select the view tab and turn on view hidden objects / system objects

I've always hated this about the Table Attachment Wizard and tools....  

To beat this I will occasionally map a drive to the lowest level folder to be able to shorten the link path length, or share the datafolder and use a UNC type link reference.
