Convert Access Linked table location from mapped Drive to ODBC
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have an Access database which is split into a back end and front end. The front end contains linked tables which have been linked to tables in the back end using a mapped drive path to the location of the backend database. I have upsized the backend database to SQL server 2000 and would like to change the location of the linked tables in the front end so they are linked via an ODBC connection. However I don't see any way of doing this in the linked table manager. Does anyony know if this is possible without having to delete the tables and relink them. The Front end is very complex and I don't want to have to recreate all the relationships, queries etc.
