I have split databases that we're moving to new folders.  The person that moved that has done so and has resetablished the links.  What is the proper way to distrubute the front-end of the database to end users?  Can you just set up a link, or do you have to send them a copy of the front-end database?  Are there any other issues I need to be aware of?  I'm giving this a high point value given the urgency.

Give them copies...

Also, in my experience with a split system it is better to open a connection to the backend db and leave that open until the work is done...just makes things faster.
