Access 2007 and LINKED external table (portable drive)
Posted on 2010-09-16
Is it possible (I am SURE it is!) to create a linked external table link that is based on the current path?
I have created the link with the external data from the ribbon bar, but when I move from one drive to another, I always have to update the link manually. This app will be running from the server eventually, and I figure at that point it will be the same always, but during development, I am switching systems and have the app on a thumb drive and depending which system, it sepends what drive letter it gives it.
So, is there a way to modify the link path through VBA or set it to reference off of the current db?
