It sounds like you have a copy of the access front-end to your database.  Change the linked tables to point to the correct back-end mdb location or map the drive to \\server\access using the drive letter H where the back-end mdb is stored.

how about change
h://access/abc.mdb  
to
c://access/abc.mdb  
?
or to
d://mystuff/abc.mdb  

This is among reasons I prefer to not hardcode, and try instead a
..\mydata\abc.mdb

For simplicity, always have all data tucked into single tables.

If you have a two drive system for XP then you can relabel your second drive as drive h: and stick the other mdb there

When attached to server, you can also copy simple tables using copy|paste instead, after creating new mdb

> you have a copy of the access front-end to

meaning, you are still missing the major piece and will not get far until you load it up somewhere.
