Relative links for linked tables instead of absolute

Is it possible to link tables with relative links instead of absolute? I don't see this option in the linked table manager. I want to move a database offline with linked tables without having to relink the tables.

No, you either use linked tables or you import them, you can change the link from 1 server to another.

You can use the Linked Table Manager to re-make your links, or you can automate the relinking process with code. In some cases, we have the db "look" at an INI file for the location of the database (one of my clients was rebuilding a very complex network, and they weren't sure where the file would be located from day to day as they changed UNCs and whatnot).
